“The Last Letter”


"Dear love here's a letter It's the last one I'll send For my love's correspondings will soon be at end." He dies with the letter unfinished. She dies from grief when she gets the letter. Now "they dwells each together in a bright home above"


  • George Riley, "The Last Letter" (Conqueror 7742, 1931)
