Lyeth interred the body
Mr James Ross
of Calcuta Merchant
who departed this life
October the 7 1751
In the 45th year of his age
Pallida mors aequo pulsat pede
pauperum tabernas,
Regumque turres.
Vita summa brevis spem nos
vetat inchoare longum Horit

With equal pace impartial Fate
knocks at the Palace as the cottage gate
Nor should our sum of life extend
burgoning hope beyond their ??? ???

Inscribed to the memory
of her tender and dear husband
Johanna Ross
