  • Here lies Fournier (Pierre Victor),
  • Inventor of ‘Everlasting Lamps,
  • ‘ Which burn only one centime’s worth of oil in an hour.
  • He Was A Good Father, Son, And Husband.
  • His Inconsolable Widow Continues his business at No. 10 Rue aux Trois;
  • Goods sent to all parts of the city. N. B.
  • Do not mistake the opposite shop for this. S. V. P. R. I. P.
