M: s. CAROLI MONTAGUE, Honorabilis Georgii de Horton in agro Northanto

niensi Filius natu sextus,
Henrici Comitis de Manchester nepos,
Scholiæ Regiæ Westmonasterienfis Alumnus,
Collegii S. S. Trinitatis Cantabrigienfis Socius.

Literas humaniores feliciter excoluit,

Et in dispari laudis genere clarus,
Inter Poetas pariter ac Oratores Anglos excelluit:

Magna ingenii indole ;
Bonarumque artium disciplinis instructus,

Ex Academiæ umbraculis
In conspectum hominum prodiit,
Literatorum decus & præfidium.

Omni dehinc cogitatione
Communi bono promovendo incubuit :

Brevique hunc virum,
Sua in fenatu folertia, in concilio providentia,

In utroque, juftitia, fides, auctoritas,

Ad gerendam ærarii curam evexit :
Ubi laborantibus fifci rebus opportunè fubveniens,

Simul monetam argenteam
Magno Reipublicæ detrimento imminutam

De

T 3

De novo cudi fecit ;
Et inter abfolvendum tantæ molis opus,

Flagrante etiam bello,

Impreffis chastulis
Pecuniarum rationem pretiumque impertiit,
His meritis et patriæ & principis gratiam confecutus,
Familiam suam diu illuftrem, illuftriorem reddidit;

Baro fcilicet, deinde comes de Halifax creatus,
Ad tres Montacutani nominis proceres quartus &ccellit.

Summo denique Periscelidis honore ornatus,
Publici commodi indefeffus adhuc consultor,
Media inter conamina, otium cum dignitate,
Quod desideravit, & meruit, vix tandem affecutus :
(Proh brevem humanarum rerum fiduciam !)

Omnibus bonis flebilis occidit,
xix die Maii, Anno Salutis MDCCXV.

Ætatis fuæ LIV.
Patruo de fe optimè merenti,
Et bonorum & honorum hæres,

Georgius comes de Halifax.

This lamp which Prior to his Harley gave,
Brought from the altar of the Cyprian dame,
Indulgent Time, through future ages fave,
Before the Muse to burn with

purer fame.

Sperne dilectum Veneris facellum.
Sanctius, lampas, tibi manus orno; ·
I, fove často vigil Harleianas

Igne Camæñas.

Here lies Sir THOMAS Powys, Knight:

As to his profession, In accusing, cautious; in defending, vehement;

In all his pleadings, sedate, clear, and strong; In all his decisions, unprejudíc'd and equitable. He studied, practised, and governed the law

In such a manner, that
Nothing equalled his knowledge, except his

eloquence ;
Nothing excelled both, except his justice.

As to his life,
He possessed, by a natural happiness,
All those civil virtues which form the gentleman:
And to these, by divine goodness, were added

That fervent zeal and extensive charity,
Which distinguish the perfect Christian!

FRUIT.
He was a loving husband and an indulgent father,

A constant friend and a charitable patron ;

Frequenting the devotions of the church; Pleading the cause, and relieving the necessities,

THE TREE

IS

KNOWN

BY

HIS

of the poor

What by example he taught throughout his life,
At his death he recommended to his family and

friends :
“ To fear God, and live uprightly.".

Let whoever reads this stone,
Be wife, and be instructed.
