On a stone, in the church-yard at Boreham, in Essex;
raised by the Honourable Elizabeth Olmius, to the
memory of Ann Gardner, who died at New Hall,
after a faithful service of forty years

Whate'er of praise, and of regret attend
The grateful Servant, and the humble friend,
Where strict integrity and worth unite
To raise the lowly in their Maker's sight,
Are her's; whose faithful service, long approved,
Wept by the Mistress whom thro' life she loved.
Here ends her earthly task; in joyful trust
To share the eternal triumph of the Just.
