Reposes all that could die of
JOHN QUINCY ADAMS,
Son of John and Abigail [Smith] Adams,
Sixth President of the United States.
Born 11 July, 1767.
Amidst the Storms of civil Commotion
He nursed the Vigor
Which nerves a Statesman and a Patriot,
And the Faith
Which inspires a Christian.
For more than half a Century,
Whenever his Country called for his Labors,
In either Hemisphere or in any Capacity,
He never spared them in her Cause.
On the twentyfourth of December, 1814,
He signed the second Treaty with Great Britain,
Which restored Peace within her Borders.
On the twenty-third of February, 1848,
He closed sixteen years of eloquent Defence
Of the Lessons of his Youth,
By dying at his Post
In her great national Council.
A Son, worthy of his Father,
A Citizen, shedding glory on his Country,
A Scholar, ambitious to advance Mankind,
This Christian sought to walk humbly
In the Sight of his God.
Beside him lies
His Partner for fifty Years,
Daughter of Joshua and Catherine [Nuth] Johnson.
Born, 12 February, 1775,
Married, 26 July, 1797,
Deceased, 15 May, 1852,
Living through many Vicissitudes, and
Under high Responsibilities,
As a Daughter, Wife and Mother,
She proved equal to all.
Dying, she left to her Family and her Sex
The blessed Remembrance
Of a 'Woman that feareth the Lord'.
"HEREIN IS THAT SAYING TRUE, ONE SOWETH AND ANOTHER REAPETH. I SENT YOU TO REAP THAT WHEREON
YE BESTOWED NO LABOR, OTHER MEN LABORED, AND YE ARE ENTERED INTO THEIR LABORS."
LOUISA CATHERINE ADAMS
FRAIL OF BODY, SIMPLE IN TASTES, AND RETIRING IN NATURE,
SHE FILLED THE ONEROUS POSITIONS TO WHICH IT PLEASED GOD
TO ASSIGN HER, WITH GRACE, DIGNITY AND FORTITUDE.
