and his embarrassed valentine

It had a picture of a girl on the face. I remember not half so pretty a girl as Ad"e- lalde and a verse under it When I read that I said to mother I'm going right over to Adelaide's now Then she laughed at me again so I had to show her the poetry. I remember well how It read I love you For you love me If you don't believe It Come and see I went over to Adelaide's but I wasn't gone long Her folks couldn't find her and I felt downhearted for ft seemed as If perhaps she had not sent It after all.
