Edwin Lord's Notebook

I love this notebook.  It was given to my great great grandfather Edwin Lord by his older brother Ira Spencer Lord..  The inscription says "Edwin Lord.  A  Present from his brother Ira on his 12th Birthday.  March 31st 1877."

The secret of this book is in the last page.  There is a secret pocket.  One day I found a lock of hair in the pocket.  It matches the colour of my great great grandmother's hair, Mary Meng.  A beautiful golden colour which both myself and my baby boy inherited.  Mary married Edwin in 1896.

There is no writing in the notebook which is a shame.
