Literatorum decus & præsidium.
Omni dehinc cogitatione
Brevique hunc virum,
In utroque, juftitia, fides, auctoritas,
Ad gerendam ærarii curam erexit :
Simul monetan argenteam
De novo cudi fecit;
Flagrante etiam bello,
Impreffis chartulis Pecuniarum rationem pretiumque impertiit. His meritis et patriæ & principis gratiam confecutus, Familiam suam diu illustrem, illustriorem reddidit;
Baro fcilicet, deinde comes de Halifax creatus,
Summo denique Periscelidis honore ornatus,
Media inter conamina, otium cum dignitate, Quod desideravit, & meruit, vix tandem affecutus ; (Proh brevem humanarum rerum fiduciam !)
Omnibus bonis flebilis occidit,
Ætatis suæ LIV.

Here lies Sir THOMAS Powys, Knight :
As to his Profession,
In such a manner, that
As to his Life,
That fervent zeal and extensive charity,
The tree is known by his fruit.
A constant friend and a charitable patron;
Frequenting the devotions of the church ;
of the poor.
What by example he taught throughout his life, At his death he recommended to his family and friends :
66 To fear God, and live uprightly."
