In a columnar framework trimmed with garlands of roses, a register of the names, births, marriages and deaths of the children of John Campbell and Hannah Martling. Baskets of flowers appear at the top; a verse and inscription at the bottom: Come in, ye blessed of the LordYe that believe his holy wordCome and recive (sic) his heavenly breadThe food with which his saints are fedYour savior's boundless goodness proveAnd feast on his redeeming loveCome all ye happy souls that thirstThe last is welcome as the first
