                        The body of
                    B. Franklin, Printer
               (Like the Cover of an Old Book
                    Its Contents torn Out
          And Stript of its Lettering and Gilding)
                 Lies Here, Food for Worms.
               But the Work shall not be Lost;
        For it will (as he Believ'd) Appear once More
              In a New and More Elegant Edition
                    Revised and Corrected
                       By the Author.
              He was born on January 6, 1706.
                          Died 17
