Heic juxta spe plena resurgendi, situm est
Depositum Mortale,
Serenissimo Principi Carolo II. à Medicina,
Qui cum primis solertissimus, fidissimus, felicissimus,
In Collegio Medicorum Londinensium,
Lustrum integrum, & quod excurrit
Præsidis Provinciam diligentissime ornavit.
Et tandem emenso ætatis transquillæ stadio     
Pietate sincera     
Inconcussa vitæ integritate     
Benignâ morum suavitate,     
Sparsâ passim Philanthropiâ     
Miserorum Asylum,     
Maritus optimus,     
Parens indulgentissimus,     
Suorum Luctus,     
Bonorum omnium Amor & Deliciæ,     
Septugenarius Senex,     
C┼ôlo maturus,     
Fato non invitus cessit
IV. Cal. Augusti, Anno Salutis MDCLXXXII.     
Cætera loquantur     
Languentium deploranda suspiria     
Viduarum ac Orphanorum
Propter amissum Patronum profundi Gemitus.     
Nudorum jam atque Esurientium,
