In Memory of
Thomas Perkins Esq.
An eminent Merchant
His Industry, Temperance & Enterprise
Raised him from Poverty to Immense
Wealth, which he enjoyed without Pride
or ostentation and dispensed with Justice
And Benevolence. He was diligent and
Faithful in business pure in his life and
Conversation; of a sound & vigorous mind
And of an Integrity and Fortitude which
Neither Prosperity or Adversity could
Shake or corrupt.
He was an affectionate son, a kind relative
And a firm friend.
He was a Christian above Sectarian prejudice
And a man above fear & without reproach
He was born in Topsfield,

died Nov. 24, 1830. [Revolutionary Soldier]
