Strange figures, in guise of peace or War, pass in and Out of the vanished gateways of the vanished fort If we think only of those whose t 鲁 ቆ bones are mingled with the soil undérneath our feet, we have but to walk a couple of furlongs from this place to the churchyard where lies the dust of Job Charnock, of Surgeon William Hamilton, and of Admiral Watson, the founder, the extender, and the saviour of the British dominion in Bengal. A Short drive of two miles will take us to the most pathetic site in Calcutta, those dismal and decaying Park Street Cemeteries where generations of bygone Englishmen and English-Women, who struggled and laboured on this stage of exile for a brief span, lie unnamed, unremembered, and unknown. But if among these forerunners of our Own, if among this ancient and unconscious builders Of Empire, there are especially any who deserve commemoration, surely it is the martyr band whose fate I recall and whose names I resusciate On this site ; and if there be a spot that should be dear to the Englishmen in India, it is that below our feet which was stained with the blood and which closed over the remains of the victims of that night of destiny, the 20th of June 1756. It is with these Sentiments in my heart that I have erected this monument, that I now hand it Over to the citizens of Calcutta, to be kept by them in perpetual remembrance of the past.”
