I dream't I died,
And to heaven did go,
"Where did you come from?"
Saint Peter wanted to know,
"Estevan", I said and St Peter did stare,
"Come in", He said, "You're the first one from there!"

I'd like to live in a cozy house that's built on friendship street.
Where the folks like you & Emilie are apt to come & we could often meet.
I'd always leave my lach string out & my door would open wide.
The day that N. Luxmore would bring you as his bride.
Signed: A friend W. E. M.

Life is like a bubble on a stream
Keeps drifting all the while
It's those cheerful smiles of yours
Which makes life seem Worthwhile.
Clarence Keeffe (or Kerffe?)
Friends may come
Friends may go
True friends are hard to find
But you are one of the Friends I got
I will always keep in mind
Hotel San Antonia
The world is wide
and the world is grand
And there's little or nothing new
But the Sweetest thing
Is the Clasp of the hand
Of a friend that is tried and true

I wish I was the China Cup
From which you take your tea,
And every time you take a sip
Twould mean a kiss for me

Here's to the blood of your health,
Here's to the health of your blood,
But you can't have good health,
without good blood,
So Here's to your Bloody Good Health

When the golden sun is setting
and your mind from care is free
When of others you are thinking
Will you sometime think of me.

As cheerfulness lengthens the summer of life
To thou dost the Season of flowers
When the year waxeth old thou with beauty art rife
And thou smilest though dark thy sky cours

Like as a plank of driftwood
Tossed on the watery main
Another plank encounters
Meets, touches, parts again.
So it is with man forever.
On lifes stormy sea.
We meet, greet, and sever,
Our argument you remember
concerned some crooked capitalists
You thought it would last till december
therefore left and joined with souambulist
By your beauty sleep you are the richer
and we thru loss of words the poorer
A. E. Koslowsky

Remember me early
Remember me late
Remember the kisses
You left at the gate

I wish you Wealth
I wish you Health
I wish you gold in store
I wish Heaven when you die
What can I wish you more.

I wonder does everyone feel about friends
Just the way that I do about mine
I wonder do other hearts warm at the thought
Of a friendship that is lasting and fine
I wonder do others know all of the joy
That one loyal friend can be giving
I wonder does every one know that a friend
Is the Sweetness and Sunshine of living.
Always your friend

Sugar for sweetness, and
Brooms for strife
If you choose wisely- well-
And if unwisely, never tell.
Your loving sister
