In Memory of, Lieut. AMOS WHITNEY, who Departed this life, Octr 31th; 1770. in the 66th Year of his Age;
The Man is Gone No More to Visit Earth
And lo a new scene opens at his death
This Publick Views in lustre now appear
And Men Enjoy his Bounties Far & near

Own him a Benefactor While he is dead
On Children Yet Unborn his Gifts descend;
