His father Rodolph, a vigorous and active man,

And his only fon Henry, whom

(The hope of his parents)
Untimely death snatch'd away

At the age of ten years,
Are buried in the same grave.

Thus !
The flourishing and wealthy family
Which the grandfather founded,

Father advanced,
Was extinguished with the grandfon.

Go thy ways, traveller !
And, convinced of the inftability of human life,

Meditate upon death.

Formâ felix, felix ingenio, Omnibus jucunda, fuorum amantiffima.

Linguis artibusque ita exculta

Ut loquenti nunquam deeffent Sermonis nitor, fententiarum flofculi, Sapientiæ gravitas, leporum gratia,

Modum servandi adeo perita
Ut domestica inter negotia literis

Oblectaretur,
Et literarum inter delicias rem

Familiarem sedulo curaret. Multis illi multos annos precantibus Diri carcinomatis * veneno contabuit,

Viribusque vitæ paulatim refolutis

E terris meliora fperans emigravit. Nata 1707, Nupta 1739, Obiit 1773.
