"Here lyeth
a decaying Body
of Historical Evidence
that should be Recorded
before it crumbles into Dust
or is Destroyed
by the work of Vandals.

Stand still reader, and let fall a tear
For the facts engraved here
And then make haste, transcribe these lines,
Learn while ye may the meaning of these signs,
Preserve these stones, avert the crime
Snatch history from the hands of time."
