Near this spot 

Are deposited the Remains of the one

Who possessed Beauty without Vanity,

Strength with out Insolence,

Courage without Ferocity,

And all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.

This Praise, whch would be unmeaning Flattery 

If inscribed over human Ashes,

Is but a just tribut to the Memory of 

Boatswain, a Dog, 

Who was born in Newfoundland May 1803

And died at Newstead November 18th 1808

A description of Newfoundland character in a famous epitaph that is on the monument at Lord Byron's estate, at Newstead Abbey, England

And on the eighth day, 
God created Newfoundlands
