Recently I was given some old pictures and a little autograph book by
Mrs. Vera Cypert Jacobs here in Melbourne. The little autograph book (with
red velvet cover) had belonged to her Uncle Mack Cypert and is to be given
to the Museum here in Melbourne. It looks like Mrs. Jacobs father, George
W. Cypert used this little book for his pupils to write in. I believe some
of the entries and names are by his pupils here in (probably) Izard Co., Ar.
But some of the last ones were from pupils in Kasoga, Texas.
I thought someone might recognize some of the names as theirs. (I have used
the spelling as it was in the book.)
Dear Uncle George: Love many-Trust Few-Always paddle your own canoe.
