His remains were interred in the churchyard of the ruined abbey at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. No stone marks his grave, but in 1884 a few admirers raised a tablet which is still seen today on the wall of the abbey's charnel house.

The Life And Adventures Of Valentine Vox, The Ventriloquist PREFACE. THE power of an accompIished Ventriloquist is well known to be unlimited. There is no scene in life in which that power is incapable of being developed it gives its possessor a command over the actions, the feelings, the passions of men, while its efficiancy in loading with ridicule every prejudice and every project of which the tendency is pernicious cannot fail to be perceived at a glance, The design of this work, although essentially humorous, is not, however, to excite peals of laughter alone it has a far higher abject in view, namely, that of removing social absurdities and abuses by means the most peculiarly attractive and pleasirag.
