The Irene Marble Autograph Book
1086 [?] Franklin St
Dec. 5, 1936.
[Printed] To keep my friends
Is my delight
So in this book
I pray you’ll write.
My pen’s no good my ink is pail, my lover for you shall never fail.
Yours till the pigs grunt
When the vessels of tie have fallen.
And the earth no more you trod.
May your name in gold be written
In the autograph of God.
In your basket of fruit consider me a peach.
Fall in a bucket,
Fall in a tub
Fall in everything
but don’t fall in love.
Yours till the kitchen sink
When you get married and have some twins don’t come to me for safety pins.
In the woodbox of memory drop a large chip for me.
A Friend in need is a friend indeed. The best friend to me is Jesus.
Boston girls are pretty
Canton girs are smart
But it takes a Brookville Junior
High school girl to break a fellows heart.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
and so is [Ch?]
