      In Memory of Capt. Seth Alden
      who departed this life 6 September, 1784
      in the 75th year of hi age.

      The corpse in silent darkness lies,
      Our friend is gone, the Captain dies!
      in peace he lived, in peach he died:
      Sleeps sweetly by his consort's side.
      In this dark cell, they both must lie,
      Till th' archangel rends the sky,
      And saints ascend to Christ on high.
