Carrie's bible is inscribed "To my dear niece Carrie, from Aunt Maria
(?),
Dec 27, 1897." I wonder if she was a poet--there are two poems in the
bible, both signed "Carrie." The one in the front is difficult to
read; the
one in the back reads:


God's Kin

There is no summit you may not attain
No purpose which you may not achieve
If you will wait, serenely, and believe
Each seeming loss is but a step to'rd gain.

Between the mountain-tops lie vale and plain,
Let nothing make you question, doubt or grieve;
Give only good, and good alone receive;
And as you welcome joy, welcome pain.

That which you must desire awaits your word;
Throw wide the door and bid it enter in.
Speak, and above earth's loud unmeaning din
Your silent declarations shall be heard.

All things are possible to God's own kin.


Note: Mariah was a British lady (not Carrie's actual aunt) who raised
Carrie's sister, Sarah Elizabeth "Daisy" Gunn Page.
