Printed on inside of card cover:-
 
There are loyal hearts, there are
          spirits brave,
     There are souls that are pure and
          true;
Then give to the world the best you
          have,
     And the best will come back to you.

 
Give love, and love to your life will
          flow,
     A strength in your utmost need;
Have faith, and a score of hearts
          will show
     Their faith in your word and
          deed.

 
 
Give truth and your gift will be paid
          in kind,
     And honor will honor meet:
And a smile that is sweat will surely
          find
     A smile that is just as sweat.

 
 
For life is the mirror of king and
          slave,
     'Tis just what we are and do,
Then give to the world the best you
          have,
     And the best will come back to you.
               -- Madeline S. Bridges.

 
 
 
 With Every Good Wish for a
 Merry Christmas
 and a Happy New Year
 .  .  from  .  .
 Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Grant.
