Inscription.  Who died April 15th 1786 in the 42d year of his age. Very much lamented.

He was an Aide-de-Camp to His Excellency General Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the American Armies and was honored with his friendship and confidence. And he was one of those whose merits were distinguished and honorably rewarded.
