Here Lyes a Valient Soldier and A Saint
A Judge, A Justice, Whom no Vice could taint
A Perfect Lover of His Countrys cause,
Their Lives, Religion, Properties and Laws,
Who in His Young, yea, very Youthful Years,
Took up His Sword, with Philip and His Peers,
And when that Prince and His black Regiment
Were all Subdued, He could not be content
to take ... West
But in a ... the rest
Here lyes likewise Interred
Beneath this Stone
MARY, Consort of the late
Colo JOHN GORHAM,
who died April 1st 1732.
The Sweet Remembrance of the Just
Shall flourish when they Sleep in Dust.
