Charles Stewart of Stevenage, obit 1796

A typical 18th century gravestone

Adieu vain world I've seen 
Enough of Thee
And am careless what thou 
Canst say of me
What Faults you have seen in me 
Take care to shun
And look at home enough 
There's to be done.

An epitaph from Stevenage recorded in Cream of Curiosity
