More Hid­den Trea­sure

Our Canada - - News - Ber­nice Maclean, Mar­garetville, N. S.

I en­joyed the story “A Trea­sure Re­claimed” by Jo-anne Sheanh (Fe­bru­ary-march 2017). I had just fin­ished look­ing over some by­gone trea­sures of my own, find­ing two old au­to­graph books I had in the 1940s and ’50s. I also found my mother’s au­to­graph books from the ’20s and ’30s. I spent a long time read­ing ev­ery verse; they were in­deed trea­sures and I loved the mem­o­ries they brought back of the peo­ple who’d writ­ten them. I’ve never for­got­ten one par­tic­u­lar verse my mother wrote in my book, “Have all, trust few, al­ways pad­dle your own ca­noe!”
