Inscription

In memory of the Rev. Mr. Jedediah Dewey, First Pastor of the Church in Bennington.

Who, after a laborious life in the gospel ministry, resigned his office in God’s temple for the sublime employment of immortality.

December 21, 1778
In the 65th year of his age

Of comfort no man speak!
Let’s talk of graves, and worms, and epitaphs;
Make dust our paper, and with rainy eyes
Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth.
