Good servant

An epitaph provided by Times commenter Mark Meynell. He says it's from a gravestone in the south of England.

"Sacred to the memory of MAJOR JAMES BRUSH, tragically killed by the accidental discharge of his pistol in the hand of his orderly.
14th April 1831"

And the Bible text placed at the bottom of the gravestone reads:

"Well done, good and faithful servant."
