Oakes Angier, Esq., Barrister-at-Law, departed this life Sept. 1st, A. D. 1786, in the 41st, year of his age, and here lies interred with mind vigorous and penetrating, assiduous and indefatigable in business. He soon arrived at eminence in his profession. Seventeen years practice at the bar with fidelity, integrity and ability established his reputation, and improved his fortune, but too fatally injured his constitution in the meridian of life, by a lingering and incurable malady. The Great Teacher put a period to his days, thereby affording an affecting evidence of the futility of the fondest dreams of terrestrial felicity.
