My Friend
You ask me on this page to write
A copy of my heart for you,
But I thought and words have fled to night.
Be sure, the original is true.
Susan C Wright

Nov. 9th 1833.

Susan C. Wright provided one of the most concise entries to the Cassey Album. Possibly she was more of an acquaintance to Cassey than the other contributors. Alternatively, Wright’s claim that she is unable to “copy” her heart onto the page suggests her affection was too strong to be represented within the conventions of the friendship album.

Original entry.
