[south] Sacred to the memory of Wm. Morgan, a native of Virginia, a Capt. in the War of 1812, a respectable citizen of Batavia, and a martyr to the freedom of writing, printing and speaking the truth. He was abducted from near this spot in the year 1826, by Freemasons and murdered for revealing the secrets of their order. [north] The court records of Genesee County and the files of the Batavia Advocate, kept in the Recorder's office contain the history of the events that caused the erection of this monument. [east] The bane of our civil institutions is to be found in Masonry, already powerful and daily becoming more so. ** I owe to my country an exposure of its cancer. Capt. Wm. Morgan. [west] Erected by volunteer contributions from over 2000 persons residing in Canada, Ontario and twenty-six of the United-States and Territories.
