and clamour and evil speaking be
put away from you with all malice
and be ye kinde one to another tender
hearted forgiving one another even as
GOD for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."

To the right-hand side, the date 1689 is painted twice, together with
an impression of the pelican in its piety. Above the panel, raised
plaster letters read "I.W.M.W". The room also contains a fine newel
spiral stone stair and elaborate stop-chamfered spine beams and floor
joists. May have been a Non-conformist meeting house after the Act
of Toleration, 1689 the date of the painting.
