[left facing page] For Nettie's Album. "May'st thou live in joy forever, Nought from the true pleasure sever From thy heart arise no sigh, And no tears bedew thine eye - Joys be many cares be few - Smooth the path thou shall pursue And heavens richest blessings shine Ever on both thee and thine.

"Round thy path may fairest flowers As in amaranthine bowers Bloom and blossom bright & fair Load with sweet the ambient - [air] Be thy path with roses strewn All thy hours to cares unknown Sorrow cloud thy pathway never Happiness be thine forever Fondly your friend E. [Glanger?] - Feb 19 the 1861

[right facing page] Miss Netty Calm be thine hour of rest And calm thine hour of waking Like wave on wave each crest Softly the Strealet [Streamlet?] breaking

May no corroding care Mar thy brow with Sorrow And each Smile that cheer Beam lighter on the morrow

May [fostering?] angels guard thy home Till love and life shall Sever Then in their heavenly glory come And take thee home forever. C. Aprl [April] 15th 1860
