Clay
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths.In feelings, not figures on a dial.We should count time by heart-throbs, he most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.To the exemplary citizen, faithful friend, trusted and honored public servant, this monument is erected by his friends who knew him best and loved him most, as a token of their love and esteem, and as an inspiration to noble action to those who may come after them. "Seest thou a man diligent in business, he shall stand before kings."Guided by lofty ideals, a steadfast zeal for the right, and a sublime faith in his people and country, with an untiring energy, he did his duty as God gave him the light to see it. "After life's



fitful fever he sleeps well."
