Tray's epitaph

Here rest the relics of a friend below,
 Blest with more sense than half the folks I know:
 Fond of his ease, and to no parties prone,
He damn'd no sect, but calmly gnaw'd his bone;
 Perform'd his functions well in ev'ry way
 Blush Christians, if you can, and copy Tray.

Peter Pindar (John Wolcot)
