Remember me at dead of night.
Remember me when the bedbugs bite.
Vinegar is sour
Sugar is sweet
And you are the girl
That can't be beat.
Your loving Grandchild.

This old Bible was the Family Bible of Enoch and Susannah Ewing. The writer of this brief statement was born A.D. 1841. My earliest recollection (perhaps at 3 or 4 years of age) my mother often would show me the pictures in it and explain their meaning to me. From my recollection and best judgement [sic] the Book the Book [sic] may have been the Family Bible as early as A.D. 1820. At the death of Mother and Father Ewing the Book was left with their oldest Daughter Charlotte Jenkins. On the death bed of my sister Oct 1904 she requested that the Book be placed in my keeping. It is a dear old relic and I hope it will continue To be all along the line ["of" inserted above the line] future generations of the ancestry of the Dear old Father and Mother.

Moth Months and 22 Days
We have a beautious little girle
her age we cannot tell
For they reckon not by Months and years
In the Land Where she is gone to dwell
