|A. A. E. C.|
Born, July 1848; died, November 1849.
Of English blood, of Tuscan birth
What country should we give her?
Instead of any on the earth,
The civic Heavens receive her.
And here among the English tombs
In Tuscan ground we lay her,
While the blue Tuscan sky endomes
Our English words of prayer.
