      Louisa Wurm

      This is a small gift from your godfather to be used daily and to grow yourself from it so you will search for trust and find its worth.

      I want to from it find a long life and praise my god as long as I am here. Be forever faithful and blessed until your cool grave and do not go a fingerís length from Godís way. Remain true to what you have praised in your continuing days. That is the wish of your godfather.
