Days Gone By - stories from the past

Tombstone Tuesday: This teacher was not well-liked

Copied from a tombstone in a Massachusetts Churchyard:


John T ______, Schoolmaster.

May he be punished as often as he punished us.

He was a hard old shell.

He said the Lord’s Prayer every morning.

May the Lord forgive him, as often as he forgave us,

That was never.

We his scholars rear this stone over his ashes,

Though they are not worth it.

We are glad his reign is over, Amen.
