a Toe afterwards a Leg
& lastly his life

A cruel Death to make 3 meals of one
To taste and taste till all was gone
But know thou Tyrant when the trumpe shall call
He'll find his feet & stand when thou shalt fall

At last he got a third

Stranger
Beneath this cone in
UNCONSECRATED
Ground
A friend to the liberties of mankind
directed his body to be inurned

May the example contribute
To emancipate thy mind
From the idle fears of
SUPERSTITION
And the wicked arts
Of priesthood

And cheerfully obeyed the summons of his God
