A California Gold Digging


An Epitaph A Day
Keeps Death's Spectre Away

From a California gold-digging;

In memory ov
John Smith who met
wierlent deth near this spot
18 hundred and 40 too. He was shot
by his own pistill;
It was not one of the new kind,
but a old fashioned
brass barrel, and of such is the
Kingdom of Heaven.
