First Line: Traveller, this is no prison
Last Line: Here lies the engraver.
Subject(s): Engraving And Engravers; Epitaphs

Traveller, this is no prison,
He is not dead, but risen.
Then is there need,
To fill his grave,
And truth to save,
That we should read, --
In Pursy's favor
Here lies the engraver.
