(S. with barque in full sail). In loving memory Robert Greenwood Bush, master mariner who died at Stanley Hospital, Liverpool, July 2nd, 1883 aged 38 years. " And so he bringeth them unto the haven, where they would be." Farewell to you, dear one, life's voyage is o'er, Its storms and its tempests can rend you no more, You have moor'd your frail barque on Eternity's strand, And are sharing the joys of Emmanuel's land.
