    Notes Printed on the verso of EBBA 35897, "A Letter for a Christian Family. / Directed to all true Christians to read. / Which being sealed up in heart and mind, / Nothing but truth in it you'l find, / Both Old and Young, both Rich and Poor, / Bear it in mind, keep it in store: / And think upon the time to come, / For time doth pass, the Glass doth run, / Therfore whilst thou hast time and space, / Call to the Lord above for Grace. / Then he will surely thee defend, / And thou shalt make a happy end."
