Notes: 

A large R.S. with an Inc'd. Ins. and Inc'd. single-line border. The stone is broken into three pieces. "Afflicted" is spelt with an "o" instead of a "c" by mistake. "Departed" and "inexpressible" are also misspelt. The first four lines of paragraph two have been misquoted and should read "I WOULD NOT HAVE YOU TO BE IGNORANT BRETHERN CONCERNING THEM WHICH ARE ASLEEP THAT YE SORROW EVEN AS OTHERS WHICH HAVE NO HOPE".
