"OLD HUMPHREY'S" GRAVE.                    95
Cheerful he passed his days below
Though stormy paths his feet had trod,
For he had found in every woe, The mingled mercies of his God ;
And they sustained him in his fears In youth, in manhood, and in years.
Old Humphrey.
He died at Hastings, November 2nd, 1854, Aged 67 years.
The committee of the Religious Tract Society have caused this stone to be erected to mark their high estimate of his character and works.
A fitting resting place for a good man. The everlasting hills are about him, close by is the murmuring sea, and above and below busy feet pass by the green slope of the hill-side where he sleeps.
