Old Point Burying Ground,
(Charter Street)
Salem, Massachusetts

Thou fair example of our rising youth
Of Modesty, of Wisdom, Prudence, Truth
In joys sedate, in sufferings much compos'd
Serene through life & peaceful when it closed
Of softest maners and of virtuous mind
Courteous to all, benevolent and kind
Go live with God who calls the hence away
Go reign with Him in everlasting day
Yet take our tears, Mortalities, relief
Until we share your joys, forgive our grief
These writes this Monument this verse receive
'Tis all a Husband, all a Friend can give.
