Chelsea, Iowa 7-14-89
Mattie Roach,
Esteemed Friend
Those best loved on earth have no friends
to spare. Friendship, hope and love are
the most pleasurable boons in memory's
store. Friendship's ties ever binding.
Hopes longings ever consoling.
Love's motives ever bright
Take these away from human life and
what have we worth living for?
Yours Very Kindly
S. T. May
