The names of those who perished
In the Black Hole prison,
Inscribed upon the reverse side
Of this monument,
Are in Excess of the list
Recorded by Governor Holwell
Upon the original monument.
The additional names, and
The Christian names of the remainder,
Have been recovered from oblivion
By reference to contemporary documents.
