Honours and praises,
written on a tomb, are at best
a vain glory, but that her charity,
humility, meekness, and watchful faith in
her saviour, will for that Saviours sake
be accepted of God, and be to her a glory
everlasting, is the firm trust of those
who knew her best, and most dearly
loved her in life, and who cherish
the memory of her departed.

The above words were written Nov 22nd 1861
by Earl Canning.
Who survived his wife but seven months
He left India on the 18th March
Died in London on the 17th June
and was buried in Westminster Abbey
On the 24th June 1862.
