In an old cemetery in Kentucky is buried a certain aged spinster who lived heart-whole and fancy-free to the age of 70 years. Her solace, as told by her each week in prayer meeting, was that when this life of pain and disappointment was ended, she hoped during all eternity to peacefully rest on the breast of Abraham. Her friends knowing her heart’s desire placed a record in this wise on her tombstone:
- Here the remains of Mary Ann rest,
- She has gone to slumber on Abraham’s breast.
- Tis very fine for Mary Ann
- But rather rough on Abraham.
