Mother thinks this book may be worth something. She is unsure how she acquired it. It has a very handsome cover, but I doubt it would be worth much.
I can't quite make the handwritten text, but here is my best shot. Now off to look at old books at ebay.
To Miss A. May from Mrs Foster
with kind regards &
and best wishes for her future welfare.
Feb 9th 1898.
Update: Published 1897 and might fetch $20 retail.
