[TRANSLATION.—Wouldst thou know the excellency of this person? She was virtue itself, which made her to be beloved by her husband, and dear to her God. Let womankind repair to this monument, that from thence they may learn the duty of a wife and the tenderness of a mother. Do not enquire whether it was erected in memory of her piety or the grief of her spouse? Her death was the occasion of it being placed here.-Supposed to be written by Chr. Wyvill, D.D., Dean of Ripon.
