Sacred to the memory
of
OGILVIE. Charles Spencer Ogilvie

of Charlestown South Carolina

and

Midshipman of His Majesties Ship L'Imperieuse

who closed his short and blameless life

by falling in the British Service

at Elvoursdyke in South Beveland

on the 16 th December 1809

in the 17 th year of his age.

The integrity of his principles

The Sweetness of his Temper

The purity of his manners

and

The Elevation and Firmness of his Professional Character

Prepared him (as it seemed) for a sure and Prosperous Course

of Worldly Felicity and Honour.

The Almighty hath dwelt yet more graciously with him

By calling him to the Blessings of Immortality

Before his fair Hopes had been clouded by Misfortune

Or his innocence endangered by Temptation.

Arms : 1 and 4, Arg., a lion pass. gard. gu., imperially crowned ppr., Ogilvie ;
2 and 3, Arg., a cross eng. sa., Sinclair.
