I thought some of you writers might appreciate,
What Miss D Rainy wrote in Miss Gladys Golding Keepsake? Notebook.
" I write not here for beauty"
" I write not here for fame
"I write to be remembered"
"So I'll simply write my name"
signed D Rainy of Lincoln England,
And one more for the pot!
"I've looked these pages o'er and o'er"
" To see what others wrote before"
"And here upon this vacant spot "
"I now inscribe "Forget me not".
"Remember me dear Gladys"
" When on these lines you look"
" Remember it was " Emily?
" Who wrote them in you book"
How sweet is that? Be Well Agman
From a school girls keep-sake of memories,
Before the days of phones and other electronic things, many young girls used to carry small keep-sake note pads, where they got to write their thoughts in, encouraging their close friends to put comments in as well,
There wasn't the isolation which the modern phone seems to create,
can you imagine the little gang of girls gathered around the school gate? giggling, squealing and laughing as they pass around their latest wee comments in their pads.
From what I've read I believe the girls attended school in Lincoln England in 1918,
As you've picked up by now? I have one of these pads and I would like to share it with you, Well? some of it " It's quite thick?
1918, Aug 17,
Owner Miss Gladys Goulding.
The first page has a drawing of a flower, no date, and signed " with love from Etta"
The next entree must be from a family?member it's signed J G 1918,
( maybe Mum?)
"Love is one thing"
"Fathers boot is another"
"If you don't get one"
"Your sure to get the other"
"Love is sweet"
"But ain't it rotten"
"To love a girl"
Signed: J E Curtis.
"If you want a treasure for life"
"Miss Gladys Golding will make you a good wife"
"She is loving and gentle and not to prim"
"For further particulars enquire within"

Well I must away? but before I go?
Read what "Miss May Campbell had to say!"
" In 19th of Aug 1918"
"Any fool can go to bed"
"But it takes a woman"
"to get up in the morning"
