                     Thus dies the great man of skill,
                     The tirant death he confers [conquer] will,
                     And reigns without control.
                     The man beloved, faithful, and just,
                     Lies sleeping in the silent dust,
                     But where's the deathless soul?
                     On angels wings hath took its flight;
                     Far from the ken of human sight;
                     Until that God who gave.
                     We trust he was a chosen one,
                     For whom our saviour, God, the son
                     Christ Jesus died to save.

   90.   In memory of Nabbee, ye daughr of Dr. Isaac Otis and Mrs. Mehetable, his wife; she died April 13th, 1774, in ye 18th year of her age.
