[left facing page] To my Friend Nettie, "I wish thee not, when thou art gay, To give, one passing thought to me; But when with friends, thy mind doth stray Let me then, be known to thee And when, I am far far from thee; And others, will with thee be, Then for a single moment say Wilt thou, but Remember me." Fannie Sept 11, 1863 [right facing page] Miss Nettie I never saw a form before, Of such unrialled [unrivaled] loveliness, Nor one who was of earth, who wore The look of heaven upon her face. I never knew a heart so kind, Such tears of others' misery flow, Nor saw a hand so gladly bind, The crushed and bleeding heart of woe. Yours, C. M. Killian April. the 21 frst.
