Inscription

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them. ECCLESIASTES, CHAPTER 12, VERSE 1.

Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right. PROV. 20 II

Thy word is everlasting truth,
How pure is every page !
That holy book shall guide my youth,
And well support my age.
