101 Ways, Part 67: Was Called to Close His Eyes on Mortal Things

For a brief intro to the "101 Ways to Say 'Died'" series, click here.
This Gershom Bartlet stone from Windham Center, CT exhibits some innovative spelling:

In Memory of Capt.
Eleazer Cary Altho
his Yousfulness in Church
& State Yet he was Call
ed to Close his Eyes on
Mortal things & went
with Unshaken Faith in
to ye Unsean world on ye
28th of July 1754 in ye 70th
Year of his Age
In him did two Great
worthys shine Wisdom
& Justice met So Kind
