OF LEONARD HODGSON LATE
OF WHITEWELL WHO DEPARTED
THIS LIFE 25TH DAY OF JUNE 1832;
AGED 83 YEARS
ALSO ELIZABETH HIS WIFE
SHE DIED THE 6TH OF JUNE 1805;
AGED 49 YEARS
This world's a city full of crooked streets;
And Death the market place where all men meets
If life was merchandise that men could buy
Rich men might live and poor men die
Heaven's decree is part we must obey;
Both rich and poor are doom'd to haste away,
To silence and to death their remain
Till the last Trumpet calls to life again.
||Good; upright and stable.
