An Epitaph A Day - October 31

Keeps Death's Spectre Away


Ruth Sprague

Died 1846, aged 9 yrs. & 4 months


She was stolen by Roderick R. Clow. Her body was dissected
at the office of Dr. P. Armstrong, Hoosick, New York; where her
mutilated remains were found and deposited here.


Her body dissected by fiendish men,
Her bones anatomized,
Her soul — we trust — has risen to God,
Where few physicians rise.
