Henry Thrale's memorial tablet
Henry Thrale's memorial tablet
This epitaph to Henry Thrale (1730 - 4/8/1781) is taken from the book Anecdotes of the late Samuel Johnson by Hester Lynch Thrale Piozzi which was first published in 1786.

"The following epitaph on Mr. [Henry] Thrale, who has now a monument close by hers [Hester Maria Salusbury, Hester Thrale's mother] in Streatham Church, I have seen printed and commended in Maty's Review for April, 1784; and a friend has favoured me with the translation:-

Hic conditur quod reliquum est. HENRICI THRALE

Qui res seu civiles, seu domesticas, ita egit
Ut vitam illi longiorem multi optarent; Ita sacras
Ut quam brevem esset habiturus praescire videretur,
Simplex, apertus, sibique semper similis,
Nihil ostentavit aut arte fictum aut cura Elaboratum.
In senatu, regi patriaeque Fideliter studuit;
Vulgi obstrepentis contemptor animosus,
Domi inter mille mercaturae negotia Literarum elegantiam minime neglexit.

Amicis quocunque modo laborantibus,
Conciliis, auctoritate, muneribus adfuit.
Inter familiares, comites, convivas, hospites,
Tam facili fuit morum suavitate Ut omnium animos ad se alliceret;
Tam felici sermonis libertate Ut nulli adulatus, omnibus placeret.
Natus 1724.
Obiit 1781. Consortes tumuli habet Rodolphum patrem, strenuum fortemque virum, et Henricum filium unicum, quem spei parentum mors inopina decennem praeripuit. Ita Domus felix et opulenta, quam erexit Avus, auxitque pater, cum nepote decidit. Abi viator! Et vicibus rerum humanarum perspectis, AEternitatem cogita!

Here are deposited the remains of HENRY THRALE, Who managed all his concerns in the present world, public and private, in such a manner as to leave many wishing he had continued longer in it; And all that related to a future world, as if he had been sensible how short a time he was to continue in this. Simple, open, and uniform in his manners, his conduct was without either art or affectation. In the senate steadily attentive to the true interests of his king and country, He looked down with contempt on the clamours of the multitude: Though engaged in a very extensive business, He found some time to apply to polite literature And was ever ready to assist his friends labouring under any difficulties, with his advice, his influence, and his purse. To his friends, acquaintance, and guests, he behaved with such sweetness of manners as to attach them all to his person: So happy in his conversation with them, as to please all, though he flattered none. He was born in the year 1724, and died in 1781. He was born in the year 17242, and died in 1781.

In the same tomb lie interred his father, Ralph Thrale,
a man of vigour and activity, And his only son Henry, who died before his father, Aged ten years.
Thus a happy and opulent family, Raised by the grandfather,
and augmented by the father, became extinguished with the grandson.
Go, Reader! And reflecting on the vicissitudes of all human affairs,
Meditate on eternity.
