Witʹtington

.

“Beneath this stone lies Wittington,

Sir Richard rightly named,

Who three times Lord Mayor served in London,

In which he neʹer was blamed.

He rose from indigence to wealth

By industry and that,

For lo! he scorned to gain by stealth

What he got by a cat.”


Epitaph (destroyed by the fire of London).
