    Hmm. Im a sucker for old handwritten notes letters etc. especially from the war times. What were you hoping to get? I imagine it's not worth much unless someone famous or well known penned it. But that's also part of the allure.

    Unfortunately I don't either. I would think its just an anonymous poem that managed to survive for about 100 years. I'll defer for now to someone who may come along and have an idea. I could make an offer but I'd like to see if someone has a better idea on value, other than what I have in my cranium. I see it as a novelty item from a historic time.

    Think Gently of the Erring by Julia A. Carney who died in 1908

    THINK gently of the erring:
    Ye know not of the power
    With which the dark temptation came
    In some unguarded hour.
    Ye may not know how earnestly
    They struggled, or how well,
    Until the hour of weakness came
    And sadly thus they fell.

    Think gently of the erring:
    Oh! do not thou forget,
    However darkly stained by sin
    He is thy brother yet;
    Heir of the selfsame heritage,
    Child of the selfsame God,
    He has but stumbled in the path
    Thou hast in weakness trod.
    Speak gently to the erring:
    For is it not enough
    That innocence and peace have gone,
    Without thy censure rough?
    It sure must be a weary lot,
    That sin-stained heart to bear,
    And those who share a happier fate
    Their chidings well may spare.
    Speak gently to the erring:
    Thou yet may'st lead them back
    With holy words and tones of love,
    From misery's thorny track:
    Forget not thou hast often sinned,
    And sinful yet must be;
    Deal gently with the erring, then,
    As God has dealt with thee.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Maybe they knew it by heart, but certainly the letter is dated 6 years after she died. It is a great poem and very apt for the great war.
