Inscription: Anne Crispin came to Dunchideock School September 29 1801, left school September 30 1803 - O fear the Lord therefore all the days of thy life and walk in the paths which he hath opened before thee: let prudence admonish thee let temprence refrain let justice guide thy hand benevolence warm thy heart and gratitude to heaven inspire thee with devotion. These shall give thee happiness in thy present state and bring thee to the mansions of eternal felicity in the paradise of God.(A version of this same v erse appears on sampler 52806)
