• How peacefully he sleep!
    Yet may his ever-questing spirit, freed at length
    from all the frettings of this little world,
    Wander at will among the uncharted stars.
    Fairfield his name. Perchance celestial fields
    disclosing long sought secrets of the past
    Spread 'neath his enraptured gaze
    And beasts and men that to his earthly sight
    were merely bits of stone shall live again to
    gladden those eager eyes.
    o let us picture him-enthusiast-scientist-friend-
    Seeker of truth and light through all eternity!
