"Ane grave two bodies doth containe-

In heaven ther souls remaine ;

Heads of ane honest familie ;

There fame will never be forgot,

Though in the grave do rot ;

Reader, though little be set forth,

Blaime thou my pen, and not their worth."

Here rests in the Lord John McLean, merchant in
Dundee, who departed this life, 10 January 1696. His
age 75. And his spouse Agnes Froster, with several of
their children.
One grave two bodies doth containe,
In heav'n their souls remaine

Heads of an honest family,
Who lived well, dy'd happily:
Their fame will never be forgot,
Though bodies in the grave do rot:
Reader, tho' little be set forth,
Blame thou my pen, and not their worth.
