Not illustrated. 1896 Excerpt: ...chink. Sixteen years old when she died! Perhaps she had scarcely heard my name; 10 It was not her time to love; beside, Her life had many a hope and aim, Duties enough and little cares, And now was quiet, now astir, Till God's hand beckoned unawares, --15 And the sweet white brow is all of her. Is it too late then, Evelyn Hope?
