Epitaph to Robert Weaver

Died 1728 aged 70

This modest stone, which few vain marbles can,

may truly say, here lies a worthy man;

Foe to contention, friend to harmless ease,

Content he lived within the arms of peace;

Gentle to poor, respectful of the great,

to kindred tender, and to equals sweet;

Calmly he looked on either life, and here

saw nothing to regret, or there a fear;

But died submissive unto nature’s law,

in a strong assurance of the heaven he saw.

Through truth’s assistance, whilst pleas’d angels strove

gently to guard him to the blest above.
