Here lies cut down like unripe fruit
A son of Mr. Amos Tute
and of Mrs. jemime Tute, his wife,
Called Jonathan; of whose frail life,
The days all summed how short the account,
Scarcely to fourteen years amount,
Born the 12th of May was he,
In seventeen hundred and sixty-three;
To death he fell a helpless prey,
On April V & Twentieth day,
In seventeen hundred seventy-seven
Quitting this world, we hope for heaven
Behold the amazing alteration,
Effected by innoculation,
The means employed his Life to save,
Hurried him headlong to the grave.
Full in the bloom of youth he fell
Alas what human tongue can tell,
The mother's grief, her anguish show
Or paint the father's heavier woe.
Who now no natral offspring has
His ample fortune _____to possess,
To fill his place stand in his stead
Or bear his name when he is dead.
So God ordand, His ways are just,
Tho' empires crumble into dust;
Life and the world mere bubles are
Let loos to these, for Heaven prepare."
