EPITAPH.

For Alexander Wedderburn, Esq; St Germains.

1 Integrity
2 Unsullied,
3 Of playful fancy,
4 Innocence of mirth,
5 Beloved companion,
6 Nor base return tarnished
7 His temper.
8 The best of Masters; an indulging spouse;
9 Useful! to others:
10 And
11 Braving out the storm!
12 He felt too deep!
13 Yet scorning to complain.
14 Ye friendly gentlemanly
15 Upright souls,
16 May no ingratitude
17 Thy evenings
18 Blast:
19 In sympathetic
20 Tears
21 Bedew his Tomb,
22 Whose fate
23 It was.
