In one file I found a beautiful little card, delicate and intricate, addressed to Emily Longmore. Since she died in 1887 at the age of seven, it is possible that this note dates from around 1886-1887. It seems like a valentine, but also might have some other goal. I'd like to think some little boy gave it to her and she cherished it for a while, which may be why someone kept it and passed it along. It could have some other significance, I don't know, but I'll let myself be sadly romantic.
