By Forces under the command

of

Lieutenant General Sir David Baird, Bart., G.C.B., K.C.

Fell in Battle

on the eighth day of January 1806

at the head of the Grenadiers of his regiment,

He had dislodged from a commanding eminence

a very superior number

of The Enemy

When he received

a mortal wound, .

in the thirtyeighth year of his age,

after a zealous service

of sixteen years.

In testimony of esteem

for

a brother officer

Arms : Per chev. emb. or and vert, three eagles displ. counterchanged. Crest : An

Beneath this Tablet

repose the remains of

Joanna Slade

FOSTER. relict of the Rev d Robert Foster.

Of humbleness of mind, benevolence

of heart, placidity of temper, patient

endurance of bodily pain, untireing

watchfulness, anticipating the wants and

alleviating the trials of a beloved husband

when his sight had become darkened.

If these and other graces united as they

were with utter self renunciation and

full and implicit reliance on Christ

as her only Saviour and Redeemer are

characteristics of the people of God

we may humbly hope that she is now

numbered among those of whom it has been declared :

" They shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts,

in that day when I make up my jewels."

She was born 12 th July 1778,

and died 22 Nov r 1846.

Prebendary and Priest Vicar of this Cathedral

and Rector of Sutton Bonington, Notts

He was born May 24 th 1766. Died Sep. 20, 1836.

A good soldier of Jesus Christ

he studied to shew himself approved of G-od

a workman that needeth not to be ashamed.

Gentle unto all men, yet neglected not

to speak the things that become sound doctrine

with all authority.

His eyesight weak from his birth

waxed more and more dim with advancing years,

till at length

those who looked out of the windows were darkened

but a light sprang up in the darkness,

while those around shed the silent tear,

contemplating his painful loss,

a holy joy would brighten up his countenance

so that of him it might truly be said,

he kissed the rod that smote him.

Thy sun shall no more go down ; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself : for the Lord shall
be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Isaiah lx. 20.

He died in the 5 th year of his age

Though so young he had strong religious

impressions and his parents in the depth

of their sorrow were comforted by the belief

that he was one of those little ones

of whom Christ said,
Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.
