Treasure Chest Thursday: The mystery of the Prayer Book
Book of Common Prayer with Hymns A. & M.
Inside the front cover it states:
Florence Smale [or Small?, it's difficult to read]
Prize for Religious Knowledge
Who was W.F.G.? A vicar or Sunday School teacher perhaps?
Inside the Book of Common Prayer with Hymns A. & M.
Inscription inside the front cover.
There is a note inside the back cover as follows:
Florence E C Small [could be Smale]
Somewhere in Blighty.
Note inside the back cover bearing Florence E C Small/Smale's address.
Although Florence Emily C Small became Florence E C Smale when she married Charles Henry Smale, this book has been passed down to me, a descendant of her sister-in-law, a different Florence Smale (later Weaver), so it may not have belonged to Florence E C Small/Smale at all, even though the reference on the back cover definitely relates to her.
