Epigraph

Illustration with caption not listed and epigraph:
 
Ah! setting sun, how chang’d I seem!
I to thy rays prefer deep gloom
Since now alas! I see them beam
Upon my Henry’s lonely tomb.
---Some there are, ere spent my vital days,
Within whose breasts my tomb I wish to raise;
Loved in my life, lamented in my end,
Their praise would crown me, as their precepts mend.
 
R.WEST.
