Inscription:
epitaph:

"Lost to the world, adieu our friend. adieu!
Unblemished spirit, seek those relms of light,
Where boundless Mercy only meets the view,
Faith lost in wonder, Hope in full delight."

Come ye, whose throbbing bosoms knoweth feel,
Come let me point you to the loosen'd sod,
Behold the tomb in the humble reverend kneel,
Here learn humility your soul and God."
