Birth: Jul. 3, 1800
Death: Apr. 1, 1833

Royal Professor of Law at Harvard. 
 
Inscription:
In him the science of law appeared native and intuitive. He went behind precedents to principles, and books were his helpers, never his masters. There was the beauty of accuracy in his understanding, and beauty of uprightness in his character. Through the slow progress of the disease which consumed his life, he kept unimpaired his kindness of temper and superiority of intellect. He did more work sick than others in health. He was fit to teach at an age when common men are beginning to learn, and his few years bore the fruit of long life. A lover of truth, an obeyer of duty, a sincere friend, and a wise instructor. His pupils raise this stone to his memory.
