Handwritten poetry by Edward Harris, Baltimore County, Maryland, undated

Summary:These artifacts include two handwritten poems. The first poem is signed "Faithful Few" on Valentine's Eve. The second poem is about an angel with a trumpet who shares that "the reign of violence is o'er!". These artifacts do not have a year written on them, but we can assume that they were written around Valentine's Day based on information written on the first poem.
