Memorial Poem on silk dedicated to the daughters of Jonathan and Deborah Huntington of Middlebury (Vermont), Minerva Mary, aged 3 months, and Mary Minerva, aged 8 years, both died from "canker-rash" on June 6, 1836, and April 8, 1841 respectively.

Middlebury (Vermont) 1841 9 x 6, black print on silk, floral border. Several tears with a couple interfering with textt, including one almost all the way across the centr, staining, fraying, creasing. "To lay those darling forms, So lovely e'en in death, Food for corruption's worm, That mouldring earth beneath! O, worse to me than twice to part, Than second death stroke to my heart!" Sold as is. Memorial poems such as this one are scarce, especially as it's not dedicated to a famous person.
