In memory of
Capt. JOSHUA BRIGGS
[w]ho died March 30th 1796
Aged 56 Years 5 Months
& 17 Days

Beneath the sacred honors of the tomb
In awfull silence & the night of gloom
The man of mercy hear conceals his head
Among the sacred mansions of the dead
No more his libral hand shall help the poor
Relieve distress nor scatter joy no more.
