Inscribed: Conscience distasteful truths may tell / But mark her sacred dictates well / whoever with her lives at strife / Loses their better friend for life / The virtuous mind that shuns all sin / And strives to store up wealth within / Will gain the prize that heart felt joy / Which time nor death can neer destroy / To you my friends let this survive / My memory to keep alive / When on this my name you see / Remember it was wrought by me
