Farewell Vain World I have Enough of [thee]
and now I’m Careless what thou Say’st of me.
What Fault thou See’st in me
Take Care to Shun.
There’s worke within thy Self
That Should be Done.
Thy Smiles I Court not, nor thy Frowns I fear.
My Cares are past, my head lies quiet here.
— Grave of Edward Carter, Died 1742, Boston
