He sustained sundry places of honour & profit
& it may be justly said of him that he was
of great abilities, very free of conversation
& always ready to help the needy.
He is justly & truly lamented by all that knew him
and was an ornament to the church til his death;
he was the obliging neighbor, the faithful friend, the pleasant companion,
the indulgent master, the tender father, the affectionate husband
& a friend to mankind in general.
