Major General in the British Army, and Knight Commander of the Bath, who died at Dilkhoosha, Lucknow of dysentry produced by the hardships of a campaign in which he acheived immortal fame on the 24th November 1857. He was born on the 5th April 1795, at Bishops Wearmouth, County Durham, England. Entered the Army in 1815, came to India in 1823. And served there with little inerruption till his death. He bore an honorable part in the Wars of Burmah, Affghanistan, the Mahratta Campaign of 1843, and the Sutlej of 1845-46. Retained by adverse circumstances during many years in a subordinate position, it was the aim of his life to prove that the profession of a Christian is consistent with the fullest discharge of the suties of a soldier. He commanded a division in the Persian Expedition of 1857. In the terible convulsion of that year his genius and character were at length fully developed and known to the world. Saved from shipwreck on the Ceylon coast by that providence which deigned him for yet greater things, he was nominated to the command of the column destined to releive the brave garrison of Lucknow. This object after almost superhuman exertions, he, by the blessing of God accomplished. But he was not spared to receive on earth the rewards so dearly earned. The divine master whom he served, saw fit to remove him from the sphere of his labours, in the moment of his greatest triumphs. He departed to his rest in humble but confident expectation of far greater rewards and honors than those which a grateful country was anxious to bestow. In him the skill of a commander, the courage and devotion of a soldier, the learning of a scholar the grace of a highly bred gentleman, and all the social and domestic virtues of a husband, father, and friend were blended together, and strengthened, harmonized, and adored by the spirit of a true Christian. The result of the influence of the Holy Spirit on his heart and of a humble reliance on the merits of a crucified Saviour. This monument is erected by his sorrowing widow and family."
