Eyes, bright, hazel and lustrous with animation, fringed
by delectable black eyelashes, fine as drawn by a pencil,

Cheeks soft and rounded � most deliciously so when she
smiles or laughs. This face
framed by a maze of jetty curls, was beside me all
that pleasant evening!

[word crossed out] Vain, fickle in liking & disliking � pettish
and petty � I�ll write no further against her �
