Colonial Series
Card reads: "To My Valentine ~ What is love? A gift or a debt? A thing to cherish or forget? A tale, a dream? I know not yet, Nor yet what love may be, To me.  Love seems made of hopes and fears, Love seems framed of smiles and tears; Both fond and fickle love appears.  Will love appear to me?  May be.  Will it make me sad or gay? Shall I bid it fly or stay?  Shall I answer Yea or Nay? If love should come to me?  I'll see.  E. S. F.".
