I Thomas of Bedford this Monument made, for a pair of good Wives, tho but one of 'em's dead: Alice P_l did of Clarkenwell Parish descend: & Ann my surviving from the Saints of Woodend. This work I attempted with sorrow & woe; cause one Wife was dead, & the other not so: However the Vertues of her I now have, make my Burden more easie, till both are in Grave. This has got all the Graces of her that is gone, and o're and above 'em some few of her own: But alass! oh alass! that such Goods shou'd decay, that e'er they shou'd dye or be taken away.
