Large tumulus; grave as the last; but full four feet deep. Bones pretty sound: the blade of a knife: coffin much burnt. At the feet, and on the outside of the coffin, were the remains of what I took to be an iron trivet; it seemed to have been round, and about six inches in diameter; but it was broken in pieces. It had been wrapt up in some coarse cloth, as appeared from the marks or impression of it on the rust: here were also several nails.
