Adieu, Vain World, Vain World Adieu
I come, Ye Blest, I come to you.
I wonder who decided on this verse. Was it from a poem beloved by Abigail Clarke? By her family? Did John Stevens enjoy Lady Mary Chudleigh's work? I'll be on the lookout for other examples of her work in the Newport Common Burying Ground.
Abigail Clarke, Newport, RI, 1728
