Mr. WILLIAM TAYLOR,
who departed this life Oct. 27th, 1810.
In the 46 year of his age.
Calm is the spot that hides the good and just
And sweet their slumbers on the bed of dust.
Hail happy spirit, while thy friends deplore
A loss which ages never can restore:
Thy bright example wipes their tears away,
And points the passage to the realms of day.
