The first poem, copied by Mary Chrystie(?) through stanza 9, is "The Crucifixion," originally published in The Amulet for 1830, and later reprinted in religious periodicals including The Evangelical Magazine and Missionary Chronicle, Volume 7. The scond poem, verso, appears to be an original composition by Mary Chrystie. It is an unfinished, untitled poem of two 4-line stanzas, with third stanza marker present but no text. It contrasts the happiness of children at "mery" (sic) harvest time ("Very joyous is their joys") with the feelings of "a little child thats sick" who wishes to "run through snow and the rain."
