Inscription:
Here lies Inter'd the Remains of SAMUEL SWIFT Esq who departed this Life Oct 13 1747 aged 64 years.

Who never did a Slander forge
His Neighbour's Fame to wound;
Nor hearken to a false Report
By Malice whispered round:
Who to his plighted Vows and Trust
Had ever Firmly stood,
And Tho' he promis'd to his Loss
He made his Promise good.
