Inscription

"Sacred to the memory of Edward Winslow, Esquire, who died
the 9th of June, 1784, in the 72nd year of his age. Descended
from a race of ancestors, Governors of the ancient Colony of Plymouth,
he in no one instance degenerated from their loyalty or
virtue, but while he filled the first offices, became as conspicuous
by public integrity as he was amiable in the milder shades of
private life. Although his fortunes suffered shipwreck in the storm of Civil War, and he forsook his native country from an
attachment to his sovereign, neither his cheerful manners nor the
calm reward of conscious rectitude forsook him in old age. He
died as he lived, beloved by his friends and respected by his enemies."

Transcription was found in; The Winslow Papers a.d. 1776-1826
