Hic in pulvere dormit Spelle
Malitudinam arden tenimus.

[This Latin Inscription of five lines instead of two, when correctly cut and copied, may read as follows:

"Hic in pulvere dormit stellam
matutinarn ardentissime
expectans.   Hoc marmor dabit
ruin am.   Sed sperm christianam
non abolebit vetustas."

"Here in the dust he sleeps, most eagerly
awaiting the morning star.   This marble
will show a ruin, but age will not
destroy christian hope."]


In memory of
Mr. Josiah
Williams,
who departed
this life Oct. 27, 1770,
in ye — year of his age.
