On the headstone of a noted miser, is the following:
Here lies old Father Gripe, who never cried Jamsatis
T’would wake him did he know you read his tombstone gratis.
From a tombstone in England
Here lies William Smith, and what is somewhat rarish,
He was born, bred and hanged in this here parish.

caused by eating green fruit, in the hope of a blessed immortality
at the early age of 21 years 7 months and 16 days.
