4. One of the readable Headstones
Sacred to The Memory Of Dr. Frederick. B. Tudor who died on the 25th of June 1821. Aged 22 years. He was born in Great Britain. On him, a Mothers blissful visions hung, He was the prop, round which the ivy clung: That ivy rent and blighted , but tis past, The leaves are scattered on the midnight blast. To wear a crest for Lapland's winter's heads: The heart is withered and the blossom's dead.
