20BorrerWilliam Arthur Borrerfirst name on this monument1816291845id: IMG_126In Memory of William Arthur the second son of John and Mary Anne Borrer born on 19thJanuary 1816 who sailed from Singapore on 23rd September 1845 , and no tidings having been heard of him , it is supposed the vessel foundered in a terrific hurricane which raged in the China Seas a few days after he left the port. Blessed with a cheerful and benevolent disposition , he gained the good will and affections of his crew and the friendship of his acquaintance. Whilst from his distant wanderings he communicated to his family when in affliction such Christian consolation as would induce them not to sorrow as those without hope. Thy way is in the sea and thy paths in the great waters and thy footsteps are not known. Psalm 77. In the midst of life we are in death.      Watch therefore for ye know neither the day or the hour wherein the Son of Man Cometh.
