ST. CARTHAGE'S CATHEDRAL, LISMORE, COUNTY WATERFORD, IRELAND

No. 0
To | the Memory of | JONATHAN HENRY LOVETT Esquire | eldest Son of the
Revd. VERNEY LOVETT D.D. | and of his Wife FRANCES MARY | this Monument
was erected | by his grateful and affectionate Sister | ELIZABETH
CAMERON. This excellent young man | on account of his high and various
attainments | was appointed in the 24th year of his age | by the
Government of Bengal | Ambassador to the Court of Persia, | in the
discharge of the duties of which station | his health, and ultimately
his life | fell a sacrifice. | He died on his passage to England | on
the 14 day of June 1805 | in the 25th year of his age, | bequeathing by
his last will | amongst other legacies | five hundred pounds | to the
Poor of the Parish of Lismore. | This fond memorial rises to his shade |
Whose dear remains in ocean's breast are laid! | When science, learning,
piety and truth, | Shed purest lustre on a lovely youth, | As if to
light him in an early grave, | And gild the virtue whom they could not
save. | Say dost thou sigh? Or mourn that bosom chill'd, | Whose latest
throub compassion's dictates fill'd. | Then for lamented LOVETT drop a
tear, | Arrested in his transient bright career. | But bow submissive in
that heavenly power, | Who will'd to pluck the bright consummate flower,
| Again to flourish in immortal bloom | Rising resplendent from its
watery tomb.
