Notes

Inscription:
Sacred to the Memory of
Elizabeth Brock (widow)
She lived a virtuous life,
And crowned it in a patient submission
to God’s will
Under a long and painful sickness
By as holy and examplery a death
on May 21st 1803
76 years, 1 month + 27 days
[ ] art unknown to thee [erased]
[ ] which thou cans’t not see
[ ] not understood
All par[ ] good
And spite of pride in erring reason’s spite
and truth is dear whatever is, is right.
Pope
