On Helen Garrison’s 50th birthday

“My Beloved Wife:  Your feet stand upon the summit-level of half a century…..  I wish you to accept the accompanying gold watch, which will mark the hours as they fly till time with you shall be no longer, and you shall enter the heavenly sphere where there shall be neither death nor decay … with its every tick will beat in unison our hearts.”  (Source: readinggarrisonsletters, Feb. 23, 1861)
