the memory of

Mr. Richard Rose,
late an Officer in the service
of the Hon. East India Company,

who died June 7th, 1768, aged 28,
of a wound received at the siege of Attoor,

a Fortress in India,
April 5th of the same year.

This Monument,
of his son's merit, and his own loss,

was erected

by his afflicted father. Blest by nature with a most sweet disposition,

he was

a dutiful son,
a most affectionate husband,

and tender parent.
The excruciating tortures
occasioned by a desperate wound,
and the lingering and painful consequences
during the space of two months,

by which
it gradually brought on

his dissolution.

He sustained
with the most perfect patience,
and exemplary resignation

to the Divine will.
By the constant exercise
of the same happy equanimity,

he lived
beloved and respected,

and died
lamented and regretted,

by all
to whom he was related

or known.
