In Memory of
Mr. HENRY SEWALL.
who departed this Life
Novr. 2d. 1792: in the
66th. Year of his Age.
He was an honest Man,
and a Christian . . . . . .
"No farther seek his Merits to disclose,
Or search his Frailties from the dread abode;
There they alike in trembling hope repose
The bosom of his Father, and his GOD."
