In Loving Memory of
William [I can't decipher his middle initial] Webber, [presumably William J. Webber?]
Oct. 3, 1898,
Age 1 yr 2 months 25 days

The little crib is empty now
The little clothes laid by,
A mother's hope, a father's joy,
In Death's cold arm doth lie.
Go, little darling, to thy home,
On yonder blissful shore;
We miss thee here, but soon will come,
Where thou hast gone before.
