Epitaph On John Adams, Of Southwell

A Carrier, Who Died Of Drunkenness

John Adams lies here, of the parish of Southwell, A Carrier who carried his can to his mouth well: He carried so much, and he carried so fast, He could carry no more‑so was carried at last; For, the liquor he drank, being too much for one, He could not carry off,–so he’s now carri-on.
