A Birthday Poem for Archie

Letter dated January 25th, 1899 from Helen J. Stewart to her son, Archie.
"My dear son Archie,

This is your birthday.  You are 14 years old.  I wonder what course you will pursue.  What you will do.  What kind of man you will be.  I think you have pride and manliness about you to try and be one of the best.  Remember always I love you and always think of you every day and wonder what you are doing.

Dare to do right
Dare to be true
Dare to be good
Everything will come right for you"
