Ethel took [illegible] with me Wed. night, and R coming down to-morrow to spend the day you may know what a “time” we are going to have as we are all the time doing something.
[On the back of the page in pencil:}
In pretty Eden love began;
An since has been the goal of man;
And the God who gave it birth
Made love the first thing on Earth.
My life is sweet; love makes it so.
And a lover can only know
has brought. Since at
Love’s school I have been
Last night while I was sleeping
The dew had fallen wet,
I fell a sleep and dreamed of
the One I can’t forget.
Her eyes were like the
Stars on a summer night.
that makes the Heaven
