Back In Time

Most of you won't remember this one, but way back in  2012 I posted this forgotten bookmark:





Well, this book finally sold today, and it had one more treasure inside:

 The book is still "Friendly Words to Young Women" by H.E. Stone. Published by the American Tract Society, no date listed, I'm guessing mid 1890s.
