In memory of Col. Abraham Hasbrouck who departed this life November 10, 1791, aged 84y2m11d

Hasbrouck thy virtues to thy Friends know
We bless thy memory and thy loss bemoan
Death and the Grave we trust thoust overcome
And safely art conducted to thy Home
Where devine Glorys beams upon thy soul
And streams of pleasure never cease to role
