    In a Vault
    Near this Monument are deposited
    the Mortal Remains of
    Thomas Curtis Esq
    who died at Bath April 4 1784 Aged 45
    He was zealous in Christian Faith and Practice
    Engaged in no profession
    He found employment in doing good
    He superintended private and public Charities
    And promoted the institution of Societies
    For the improvement
    of Science, Agriculture and Arts
    In private life He was distinguished
    By every amiable and domestic Virtue
    the Excellence of his Character
    Is impressed upon the memory
    of his Friends
    But this record may kindle emulation
    And excite others to Go and do likewise
    Also
    in the same Vault are deposited
    the Mortal Remains of his Widow
    Ann Curtis
    who died at Bath Jan 5 1798
    Aged 60
    Innocent in life, Engageing in Manners
    Diffident of her abilities
    But by her Conduct giving proof
    Of Prudence and Sound Judgement
    She lived and died affectionately belov'd
    By her Family and Friends
    And Esteemend by all who knew her.
