6. Opposite side of tomb
I repose in this quiet and secluded spot
Not from any natural preference for solitude.
But finding other cemeteries limited as to race,
by Charter rules
I have chosen this that I might illustrate
in my death
The principles which I advocated
through a long life:
Equality of man before his creator.
