The moulderillg veil the spirit left below,
Fond fancy dwells, and pours funereal strains
The soul dissolving melody of woe"

Margaret Christian, wife of John Christian, Esq., of Unerigg, in Cumberland, daughter of John Taubman, Esq., of the Bowling-green, and Esther his wife, 1st February, 1778, aged 29. Tho' called away in the prime of life from the fairest prospects of human felicity;
from the delighted hopes of most indulgent parents;
from the tender affection of a loving husband; from
the early promise of an only son, and from an affluent fortune;
yet did she not repine. Innocence, virtue, and unaffected
sanctity, enabled her to meet the awful summons with devout
resignation. The esteem and admiration of the wise and good;
the dearest love of those that knew her best; the agonising
sorrows of disconsolate friends, pleaded in vain for her longer stay; yet was not her death untimely.
Blessed with wisdom above her sex, and virtue beyond her years, her task she soon finished.
A specimen was all that was required, and now with the dead, that die in the Lord, she resteth from her labours, and
her works do follow her.
Learn hence, ye rich, unthinking, young and gay,
Duly to prize the morning of your day;
Dark clouds may intercept your noontide sun,
Or night o'ertake you, ere your work be done.

81
Knowest thou, O man ! who passest by this spot,
That rest from labour is the just mau's lot;
EIis body buried here lies mixt with earth,
His soul, set free, enjoys a second birth;
Alld, disencumber'd from its clay, flies light,
Springs thro' the air heyoncl the realms of night.
Wrapt up in pleasing hope, it mounts on high,
To meet its Lord....Let sinners fear to die.
