In Memory of Peter SAILLY Esqr Who died on the 16th day of March 1826; Aged LXXII years. A native of Loranie in France he adopted America as his Country in the year 1785; The strength of his intellect, the benevolence of his heart, and the spotless integrity of his life, made him esteemed as a citizen, respected in various public offices, & beloved as a friend and relation. His disconsolate family have erected this frail monument of his exalted worth and of their affection.
