[Epitaph, November 20, 1890]

Description: This document is an epitaph from the Charles B. Moore Collection. It was written in November of 1890 when Moore was 68 years old. The epitaph reads: "As a wave of the tide leaves its mark on the sand for next waves to flow over and wash from the strand,so will I leave a mound with name, dates - death and birth - for next ages to sweep from that face of the earth. I believe all our consciousness ends with our breath, that we know before birth, all we know after death. With no fears to annoy and no hopes that might tease, un-prayed for, I wish to die off at my ease." Pieces of the paper, along with the words on those papers, are missing towards the end of the epitaph.
