Inscription

Consecrated by the United Fraternity to the memory of Oliver Spaulding, member of the junior class, Dart. coll. drowned in Connecticut river, 29 July, A.D. 1807, aged 23.

With social affection and virtuous mind,
Exalted by genius, by science refin'd,
Our Spaulding in rare combination did blend
The man, the philosopher, poet, and friend.
