[page 75, continued:]

TO ——.

———

[column 1:]

Fair maiden, let thy generous heart

From its present pathway part not —

Being every thing which now thou art,

Be nothing which thou art not.

So with the world thy gentle ways, [column 2:]

Thy unassuming beauty,

Thy truth — shall be a theme of praise

Forever, and love a duty.
