Here's a copy of a dedication or rather rededication written in the fly leaf of my copy of the 'Trail of 98' to Miss Hain(e)y on her engagement to Royal R Brown. Below the picture is a
a typed version of the same as it is not easy to read even in the original
Dear Miss Hainey
Royal has just told me his wonderful news, may I be the first to offer you my best wishes for your happiness Royal is my best and truest friend. I hope your gain is not my loss you have placed your happiness in wonderful keeping & so please accept this with my best congratulations, until I offer them personally to you Miss Hainey I gave this book . to Royal the memory of the last (lost) two Chapters
And as you go through life remember Nellie
god would not reveal to you the great reality of love, only to plunge you into darkness true love cannot be in vain. So read this book a chapter of my own life the last two chapters were written by your(s) Royal
Robert W. Service
I have reclaimed this book from Mr Brown, & have asked him to deliver the same to you with my very best Regard
