Decorated with the Mason’s Arms beneath the spout. The verses:

“When first I was a foremast man I often did pretend..

That if e’re I got promoted I would be a seaman’s friend..

Then in a little time I was promoted to a mate..

But then like all others Soon forgot my former state…

A when I became a Captain I thought myself a king..

But vey soon I did forget  The foremast man I’d been”

(and)

“The sailor tost in stormy seas

Though far his bark may roam,

Still hears a voice in every breeze

That wakens thought of home;

He thinks upon his distant friends,

His wife, his humble cot;”

And from his inmost heart ascends

The prayer – forget me not”
