‘In / Memory / of / Wm LUCE, SON OF WM AND / ANNA LUCE. / drown’d from a perventive [sic] boat, / Febry 26th 1834, leaving a tender / Mother, to lament for an only son. / Aged 22. // Death no warning to me gave, / But quickly sent me to my grave; / When far from friends remote from home / The depths receive my last sad moan; / Drown’d without a tender mothers care / To soothe my cold heart, nor hear my / parting prayer.'
