In Memory of
Mr. Josiah Burges,
who died
November 28, 1793
AET 26 years 4 mo
& 10 days

O death where is thy sting.
O grave where is thy victory.
The sting of death is sin;
And the strength of sin is the love.
But thanks be to God.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Those are the last words of the deceased.
