This Album is a reef to thee,
Sacred to love and memory,
Let every line or flower be
A pure, bright gem of constancy.

~ Written by F. A. Musgrove

"There is another album
Filled with leaves of spotless white,
Where no name is ever tarnished,
But forever pure and bright.
In the book of Life - God's Album,
May your name be penned with care,
And may all who here have written,
Write their names forever there."

~ Mary F. A. Musgrove

Select for your self,
The way that is best
That others may be guided
To an endless rest.

~ Willie B. Musgrove

True friends are but few.
But when you find a friend.
Change not the old for the new.

~ F. A. Musgrove

Friends may forsake you,
And friends may die;
Friends may forget you,
But never will I.

~ H. G. Musgrove

untrue as they with our saviour

Miss Mary Musgrove.
Guard well they thoughts.

Mary please except this little gift of mine
To read in lonesome hours
When parted we may be
And pray that if we meet on Earth no more
That we may meet in heaven

Farewell! how oft that sounds of Sadness
Like thorns of sorrow pierce the heart,
And hush the harp tones of its gladness
And tear the bleeding chords apart.

~ A. N. Musgrove

Farewell! and if by distance parted,
We see each other's face no more,
Ah! may we with the faithful
Meet beyond this parting Shore.

Your little Cousin

Among the many friends that claim,
A kind remembrance in thy breast,
I too would add my simple name,
Among the rest.

Last in your heart
Last to bee remembered

Sweet the hour when
When first I met you
Sad the hour my lips shall
Say by and by you will
Forget me by and by when
Far A Way

Your Friend

Remember me I only
Ask this little Gift of the[e]
And in some sad and lonly
Hour read this and think of me

May the Gods in
Heaven bless you
And keep you from
All sin and when you
Knock at the Golden Gate
May the Angels let you in

~ Clara Musgrove

When this you see remember me
Tho far away I bee
May the blessings of God attend you
As you read these lines
Remember the one that put a name here
And if we never meet here again
Let us live that we may in Heaven meet

This Mar 28th 1888
Your Cousin
