"Sacred to the memory of Richard Calthorp who gallantly fought and fell in defence of Christian liberty in the dreadful but ever memorable attack upon Algiers on the 27th day of August 1816 Aged 23 years. He went to sea at the early age of thirteen and after eight years spent in the most active service during which period he had been in several partial but severe engagements went out upon promotion as an Admiralty Midshipman on board the Leander in the above expedition. In this ship carrying 56 guns he had the command of the small arm party and almost at the conclusion of that tremendous engagement and when it raged with its utmost fury as he was animating Seamen to exertions against the most ferocious enemies of mankind a fatal ball severed his head from his body and thus perished in religious, Holy cause this promising and intrepid youth, without a pang and in the very glowing moment of victory. From a respect to his many manly virtues, this sacred stone is here erected by an affectionate mother and ten surviving brothers and sisters.
