Susan Ione Campbell - Jesse Eldon Butler
August 27, 1947
Eldon's father, Jess Butler, gave the new couple some sound advice through the poem (above) and the note (below).
Although I can't be certain, it appears that Jess may have written the poem himself. I have done a search on the internet for poetry containing these words and found nothing. He doesn't credit another author, and the words read as though they were written specifically for Eldon and Susan.
