The Inscription upon the Statue of

JOHN HOWARD, Esa. Erected to his Memory in St. Paul's Cathedral, 1796.

by Trhitzeryd

This extraordinary man Had the fortune to be honoured, whilst living, . In the manner which his virtues deserved. ... He received the thanks Of both Houses of the British and Irish Parliaments, For his eminent services rendered to his country

And mankind. Our National Prisons and Hospitals, Improved upon the suggestion of his wisdom, Bear -testimony to the solidity of his judgement, And to the estimation in which he was held

In every part of the civilized world, Which he traversed to reduce the sum of human

misery. From the Throne to the Dungeon, his name was Mentioned with respect, gratitude, and admiration!

His modesty alone Defeated various efforts that were made during his life,

To erect this Statue, Which the publick has now consecrated to his memory. He was born at Hackney in the county of Middlesex,

Sept. 2, 1726. The early part of his life was spent in retirement,

Residing principally on his paternal estate

: at Cardington, in Bedfordshire,
For which county he served the office of Sheriff,

In the year 1773.
He expired at Cherson, in Russian Tartary,

On the 20th January, 1790, . A victim to the perilous and benevolent attempt To ascertain the cause of, and find an efficacious

remedy for the plague. He trod an open, but unfrequented path to immortality, In the ardent and unintermitted exercise of Christian

: Charity. . May this tribute to his fame Excite an emulation of his truly glorious atchievements.

Iritten l'y Sir JVilliam Jones for himself.

Here was deposited,
The mortal part of a man,
Who feared God but not death;
And maintained independence,

But scught not riches.;

None below him, but the base and unjust, None above him, but the wise and virtuous ;

Who loved
His parents, kindred, friends, country,

With an ardour,
Which was the chief source of
-All his pleasures and all his pains ;

And who having devoted
His life to their service,

; And to
The improvement of his mind,

Resigned it calmly
Giving glory to his Creator,
Wishing peace on earth,

And with
Good will to all creatures,
.. 'On the [Twenty-seventh] day of [April,]

In the Year of our blessed Redeemer "One Thousand Seven Hundred and [Ninety-four.]

CANTERBURY CLOISTERS.

On Master Hall. Tho' infant years no pompous honors claim, The vain parade of monumental fame, To be their praise; the last great day shall rear The spotless innocence that sleepeth here.
