Gen. Quae Maritos habuit Jos. Fisher A.M. Archidiaconum Eccles. Cathedral. Carliol. Et Hujus Vicarium, Et Franc. Thompson S. T. B. Hujus Eccles Vicarium Ob. 25 Octobris A. Dom. 1737 Aetat 65. Here rests a Pattern of the Female Life, The Woman, Friend, the Mother, and the Wife, A Woman form'd by Nature, more than Art, With smiling ease to gain upon the Heart. A Friend as true as Guardian Angels are, Kindness her Law, humanIty her care. A Mother, sweetly tender, justly dear, Oh! never to be nam'd without a Tear. A Wife, of every Social Charm possest, Blessing her Husbands, in her Husbands blest. Love In her Heart, Compassion in her Eye, Her Thoughts as humble, as her Vertues high. Her Knowledge useful, nor too high, nor low, To serve her Maker, and her Self to know. Born to relieve the Poor, the Rich to please, To live with Honour, and to die in Peace. So full her Hope, her Wishes so resign'd, Her Life so blameless, so unstain'd her Mind, Heaven smil'd to see, and gave the gracious Nod, Nor longer would detain her from her God. Heu ! Mater. charissima, Heu ! Mater optima, Vale! Vale! Johannes & Guilielmus Thompson Filij, Memory of P.
