Tombstone inscription:

Born in Philadelphia, A.D. 1747. Graduated at Nassau Hall, New Jersey, A.D. 1771, with great distinction. Having studied law in Philadelphia, he practiced in Delaware with success, distinguished by his eloquence as an advocate, attorney-general, member of the Legislature of Delaware (and of Congress), and one of the delegates to the Convention that framed the Constitution of the United States (by whose efforts, with those of other delegates, two senators were obtained for the State of Delaware). He received from Washington the commission of first judge of the District Court of the United States for the District of Delaware, which he held till his death, in 1812. He so behaved in these high offices as to deserve and receive the approbation of his fellow-citizens. His form was goodly, his temper amiable, his manners winning, and his discharge of private duties exemplary. Reader, may his example stimulate you to improve the talents be they five, or two, or one with which God has intrusted you.
