In loving memory of Katherine Margaret Ledwell

Beloved daughter of A. B. & E. Ledwell

Born 9. July 1897.
Died 26. October 1913.

Blessed are the pure in heart.

Erected by the public of Tasmania in affectionate remembrance of a noble girl

Just as I am -- without one plea.
But that thy blood was shed for me.
And that thou bidst me come to Thee.
O land of God I come.
