He served 40 in the said Reigiment, with unabated Zeal, diligence and Loyalty to his king; and firm attachment to his country; While his private conduct was equally commendable. For Rectitude, Probity and Sobriety; He was esteem'd by his Officers; and beloved by his fellow Soldiers.

May this additional Example of the awful uncertainty of Life prove a warning to thee to prepare for a similar fate, by a faithful discharge of the duties of thy station, and by an humble reliance on the merit of thy Redeemer.
