Late Librarian of Harvard College. 
 
Inscription:
In this grave are deposed the remains of Nathanial Ward. Late librarian of Harvard College, whom a penetrating genius improved by an extensive acquaintance with the liberal arts and sciences. Rendered superior to most his native good senfe and literary accomplishments attracted universal notice while his amiable disposition and social virtues especially his singular frankness and undissembled benevolence gained him the esteem and love of all. He was a dutiful son, and affectionate brother. A faithful friend and agreeable companion. A sincere piety towards God crowned his other virtues and promised a life eminently useful. But ah blasted hope! In the vigor of youth amid happy prospects cut off by a raging fever he breathed forth his soul Oct XII in the year MDCCLXVII aged XXIII (Oct 12, 1767. Aged 22)
