In Lydford Churchyard, near Dartmoor, England:
Here lies, in horizontal position,
the outside Case of George Routle1gh, Watchmaker;
Integrity was the Mainspring,
and prudence the Regulator,
of all the actions of his life.
Humane, generous, and liberal,
his Hand never stopped,
till he had relieved distress.
So nicely regulated were all his Motions,
that he never went wrong,
except when set a-going by people
who did not know his Key:
Even then he was easily set right again.
He had the art of disposing his time so well,
that his Hours kept running on in a continual round of pleasure,
till an unlucky Minute put a stop to his existence.
He departed this life Nov. 14, 1802, set. 57,
in hopes of being taken in hand by his Maker;
and of being thoroughly Cleaned, Repaired, Wound up,
and Set a-going in the world to come.
