Excerpt: For the long nights you lay awake and watched for my unworthy sake: for your most comfortable hand that led me through the uneven land: for all the story books you read: for all the pains you comforted: for all you pitied, all you bore, in sad and happy days of yore:- my second mother, my first wife, the angel of my infant life- from the sick child, now well and old, take, nurse, the little book you hold!
