Inscription.
Sacred to the Memory
of the Rev'd John Trumbull
senior Pastor of the Church of Christ
in Westbury
And one of the Fellows of the Corporation
of Yale College;
Who died December 8th AD 1787
In the Seventy third Year of his Age,
And the Forty eighth of his Ministry
If distinguished Learning, Industry and Abilities;
The most unaffected Piety of heart;
The firmest Attachment to the Doctrines
of the Gospel;
The most unblemished moral Character;
A studious Attention and Friendship
to the People of his Charge;
The most chearful Hospitality to his Friends,
And ardent Charity to the Poor
Which rendered him respectable in Life.
And in a firm Reliance on the Merits
of the Redeemer,
Raised his Mind above the Fear of Death
Can render the memory of the Deceased
Dear to his Survivors
And afford a worthy Bramble
To Posterity;
Go Reader, & imitate his Virtues.
Behold the Upright Man. His End is Peace.
