In the lone mansion of the sacred tomb

Rests a lov’d friend who perish’d in his bloom,

No time allow’d to wean him from the world,

But in a moment from existence hurled.

Deep. Deep he sunk beneath the dark cold wave,

But not too deep for sovereign Grace to save.

As a small token of esteem this tablet was sent from America, and caused to be erected by his afflicted brother Thomas Jackson, of New York, Merchant.
