Dear Nellie since I left the city, I've found I've changed my mind
I hope you wont think me untruthful, Or do me the least unkind
I think we're both mistaken, I know you'll never suit me
I owe my heart to another, Of course kind ]friends willagree
Please send me my ring and pictures, Also my letters and books
My clothes with many kind wishes, Respectfully yours Charlie Brooks

I heard all about it dear Charlie, I knew it would end this way
I hope you will always live happy, With your loving little wife Miss Gray
Now here's your ring dear Charlie, Dont give it to her I pray
Unless you tell her twas once mine, I wore it one year today
One year today dear Charlie, So happy were we both
You vowed you'd never forsake me, But I find you untrue to your oath

Here's your picture dear Charlie, It's almost faded away
Because I kissed it so often, And this you can tell Miss Gray
As far as your letters dear Charlie, I burned them as they came
I feared by reading them over , Would cause our love to inflame
I must say goodbye dear Charlie, My letter is near an end
Remember I'm always and always, Forever and ever your friend
