Such was the firmness of his mind that he was swayed neither by the applause or censures of men but appeared ever to act under afence of being accountable to his God.

Pensive hast follow'd to the silent tomb:
Steer'd the same course, to the same quiet sbore,
Not parted long and now to part no more:
Go then, where only bliss sincere is known.
Go where to love, and to enjoy are one.
Yet take these tears, mortailty's relies.
And till we share your joys forgive our grief:
These little rites, a stone, a verse receive.
