A Parents best gift to his children
Presented to
Samuel KNIGHT and Lucy P. H. KNIGHT
by thir father
Jacob P. HUNTINGTON
Guilford, May 30, 1862

As oft as this my kindred see
Let them with friendship think of me
For when on earth we cease to move
I hope to meet them all above.

Mourn not my body beneath the sod
But hope and trust in Israel's God
If truth devine your lives controls
Abounding Grace will save your souls.
JPH

I don't know if the verse is original to him or not. RHB
