1832. Erected by Robert Nicoll, Merchant, Dundee, and Janet Caithness his spouse, in memory of their two infant sons, James who died 23rd April 1830, aged 16 days; Robert, who died 17th June 1831, aged 29 days.
Sweet Babes! on earth no more-
Their souls enlarg'd to Angel's size,
Joins in the triumphs of the skies,
Adores the Grace that brought them there,
Without a wish, without a care;
That wash'd their souls in Calvary's stream,
That shorten'd life's distressing dream,
Short griefs, short pains, Sweet Babes! were thine,
New Joys, Eternal and Divine.
