Mother's Last Letter to Me.
Copyright, 1883, by T. B. Harms St, Co.

I've a letter at home, which I treasure so dear,
And to lose it would cause me much pain;
I have read it so often, I know it by heart,
Oft' times I shall read it again;
My dear mother wrote it to me when a boy,
Before she was summoned above;
Tis the only remembrance of her I retain,
And 'tis filled with a mother's fond love!

Mother's last letter to me
In a feeble handwriting I see,
"My dear boy, I pray, do not be led astray,"
In mother's last letter to me.

When in far distant lands, oh, how eager I'd be,
To receive a short message from home;
When my mind would turn back.T would often shed tears,
To think how I left mother alone.
But then I'd build hopes and would picture myself,
Home again by my dear mother's side;
But when I returned I received the sad news.
That a fortnight ago she had died!-Chorus.
