      MDCLII
      Inscribed to the Memory of
      Doctor William Cocke
      An English Physician Born
      of reputable Parents.
      He was learned and polite,
      Of undisputed skill in his profession,
      Of unbounded generosity in his practice,
      Which multitudes yet alive can testify.
      He was, many years, of the Council
      and Secretary of State for this Colony
      In the reign of Queen Anne and of King George.
      He died suddenly, sitting a Judge on the Bench
      of the General Court in the Capitol
