Box 12-774 TO MRS. MARY BAKER MCQUESTEN, a poem from William Murray
Jun 18 1873 [approximate date]1
To: Mary Baker McQuesten

To dear Mary

May all thy days be peace and joy,
And free from care & sorrow.
Restrained by nought that can alloy,
Your prospects for the Morrow.

Though clouds should sometimes cross thy way
Though sorrow may betide thee,
From darkest night shines forth the day
There pleasure dwells beside thee.

1 Likely to Mary on her wedding day.
