Pious poetry written into the front of a Bible: “Whoever reads this Sacred Page / May find a Solace for his Case / That can Life’s darkness [?] assuaged / And keep him safe from black disguise / Here learn with gratitude to know / This Sacred Book to man was given / To light his erring steps below / And guide him safely on to heaven.”
