DEDICATED

TO

MATILDA M. HAYS.

        "Our tokens of love are for the most part barbarous.  Cold and lifeless, because they do not represent our life.  The only gift is a portion of thyself.  Therefore let the farmer give his corn; the miner, a gem; the sailor, coral and shells; the painter, his picture; and the poet, his poems."Emerson's Essays.

A.A.P.

May, 1858.
