Friend Mattie,

So should we live, that every hour
  Should die as dies a  natural flower
A self-serving thing of power;
  That every thinght and every deed
May have within itself this seed
Of future good and future need

Your Friend, Mrs. Anna L. Bell

Belle Plaine Iowa. July 6" /84,

From the autograph album of Martha M. "Mattie" Roach of Chelsea, daughter of Fred and Eliza J. (Hutchins) Roach. She was born in 1866 and married Samuel T. May in Toledo, Tama County, in 1891.
