TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: No one ever believed him

Capt. Jones was a great traveler and fond of telling large stories, some of which he verified by an oath. When he died, the following Epitaph was placed on his tombstone:

  • Tread softly, mortals, o’er the bones
  • Of the world’s wonder, Captain Jones!
  • Who told his glorious deeds to many,
  • But never was believed by any.
  • Posterity, let this suffice:
  • He swore all’s true, yet here he lies
