Better it is to have a small portion of good sense

with humility and a slender understanding than

great treasures of many sciences with vain

self-pleasing. Better it is for thee to have little

than much of that which may make thee

proud.

           December 1917

                 ---

       R.fn. A. Taylor

     Ill not deny that women are foolish

But God Almighty make then to match

                       the men

 Alice B. Williams

               Claremont

                        ...    Australia

Full many a gem of purest ray serene

The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear

Full many a flower is born to blush unseen

And waste its sweetness on the desert air.

                              Jan 1917
