Description

Cut paper Valentine with cut out figures birds and flowers. Center plain with poem: "Let love occupy your heart / Let love inflame you continually. Not a love which burns with incontinence / And pursues a base desire for worldy things. / God's love should impel you / To leave Evil alone / To love your Neighbor as yourself / And carry your cross forbearingly / Made in Honor/ of/ Sophia Kemperlin / moth(?) of John Tillman Dickenshaw in the year of our Lord 1752."
