CEMETERY

-n.

An isolated suburban spot where mourners match lies, poets write at a target and stone-cutters spell for a wager. The inscriptions following will serve to illustrate the success attained in these Olympian games:

       His virtues were so conspicuous that his enemies, unable to
overlook them, denied them, and his friends, to whose loose lives
they were a rebuke, represented them as vices. They are here
commemorated by his family, who shared them.
       In the earth we here prepare a
Place to lay our little Clara.

Thomas M. and Mary Frazer

P.S. — Gabriel will raise her.
