To the memory of
Sir John Horsford Knight
Commander of H.M.
Most honourable order of the Bath.
A Major General on the staff

Who after a long Career of meritorious Service
Distinguished by the most perfect
Integrity and Honor
Departed this life

An exemplary victim to that spirited ardour
And high sense of duty
Which led him but a few weeks before
Under great bodily sufferings
And in very severe Weather
to manifest his professional Skills and Fortitude
At the seige and capture of
