A Flowering of Affection: Victorian Valentine Cards at the Lilly Library

Decorated paper valentine

Not dated.

On front:

Why fear to answer yes?
This circling bond a charm,
Will give existing bliss;

Will plighted vows each bosom warm,
Doubt not dear maid; no guile with me,
But love unto eternity.
