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

Forget-me-not Valentine

Valentine in the form of a decorated and embossed paper envelope. It opens to an image of flowers and a packet of flower seeds. The three images below document the front and back of the envelope and the opened envelope.

On front:

Forget Thee! Never

E'en time will never from
	my heart
Thy much-loved image blot,
Though every other dream
Thou wilt not be forgot.
