Description

Loose inside album P.14417-R between nos. 7 and 12. A small rectangle of blue transparent cellulose, printed in gold lithographic ink with a decorative border around a titled verse: 'HAPPINESS / And thou art happy - since 'tis thine / To hear his whispered vows; / While Love and Constancy entwine / Their garlands round your brows. / And he shall press the bridal wreath / Upon thy forehead fair. / And fealty unto thee till death / Before the altar swear.'. Printed below the verse at lower centre: 'J.T. Wood Holywell St.'. Found with three other loose, printed cellulose valentines by J.T. Wood: P.14417-R-L3, P.14417-R-L4 and P.14417-R-L6. The cellulose rectangle was probably originally contained inside or intended for a sleeve and envelope like the examples mounted onto the album leaf; See P.14417-R-7, P.14417-R-8 and P.14417-R-11.
