GOD BLESS THEE, DEAREST
COULD MY HEART,
BUT BLESS THEE AS
IT WOULD;
AND CALL DOWN BLESSINGS
SELDOM PRIZED,
AND STILL LESS
UNDERSTOOD;
WHAT DEPTH OF HAPPINESS
WERE THINE;
WHAT PRECIOUS STREAMS
WOULD FLOW;
AND SHED THEIR FRESHNESS
ROUND THY HEART,
WITH JOY THAN ANGELS
KNOW.

The two bookmarks above were both made by Welch & Lenton, with their name woven on the reverse top turnover of both.
One though is attached to the stiff backing paper with printed THOMS W. BAND name, and the remainder of the printed
design being identical to that of Welch & Lenton. It would seem therefore that THOMAS BAND were only a marketing outlet.
