Inscription from Monteith's An Theater Of Mortality

BESSIE WRIGHT's Monument

In tomb although consum'd my body lies,
Yet my Redeemer Christ, with thir same eyes,
I shall behold, who of my life the prope
Was still, my trust, and portion of my lot.

I'le rest in hope, till Christ in clouds appear,
Who, with the saints, this body will uprear;
My soul united, from spots of sin, shall free:
Me with himself in heav'n, will glorifie.


Heir lyeth the bodie of Bessie Wright spouse to Patrick Rob cordiner who died Jan 25 1670 and of age 44 years.

Claimant: David Steel, farmer Carmichael.
