This Bible includes a letter from Nina’s sister after the death of Nina’s daughter Iva. January 8 My Dear Brother & Sister
My heart aches for you. I did not get your letter until this afternoon, it is so strange. It does seem as if it should not be she was in heaven and I can sympathize with you in every heartache. We have been looking at her picture. I never looked at it but I thought she would be there for she was looking up as she was going soon. The children say it looks like an angel. I went to Bell’s the day you wrote found Bell sick and stayed and took care of her until Tuesday. Stafford fell a tree and hurt his leg so that he will not step a step for a number of days. Ned is sick today with a headache. Ned went to (somewhere) Monday and he bought a ? of music. “Angels loved our darling” it is beautiful. He says you would like. I will fetch it when I come. If Father and Mother are sick let me know write don’t let the rest die and I not see them. I am half crazed thinking of all these things I have been up 22 nights in the last 5 weeks. I’ll write to Father and Mother Sunday. Tell the dear children I hug them for they will miss their pretty little sister. It never was so sickly in this town in this time people are dying almost every day. I shall think of you every hour. Sister won’t you write me? Poor Mother she’ll take it hard and have to think alone if she is not very sick. Do let me know how you all are. The children send some cards. They’ll send cash for next time. I’ll write the words of that song and fetch the music when I come. Goodbye.
Angels loved our little darling, and they watched her day by day, like a dream she came to bless us, like a dream she fled away, purer thou the water lily, on the bright and golden shore, Now her little feet are wandering, and she’ll glad our home no more, far away she quietly wanders, where the golden waters glide, angels loved our little darling and they called her from our side, angels loved our little darling, claimed her for their sister dear, life to us was joy and pleasure, when she lingered with us here, now our weary arms are empty, now we sigh and weep in vain, for our sunlight and our treasure, now will bless our home no more.

What a sad letter! I looked for this song online, but it must be too old. Definitely a treasure to have! Praying this Bible makes its way home.
