This bookmark is identical to Bollans - recorded as obo656.

It is worth noting that there are two Bollans bookmarks recorded as "To My Cousin / I'd have your life . .".
One is the exact copy of the one above [obo656], and it has the word "AUGHT" in the third to last line.
The other bookmark however has instead the word "OUGHT", and this version is recorded as obo657.
