The daughter of California poet Joaquin Miller here produces her own verses on flowers and fairies, though there is also one on heeding her father's advice and getting a divorce. Four poems on two facing pages are here amended extensively in pencil (perhaps by the author) to change their thrust from roses to begonias, evidently in response to some breeds of flowers seen at a San Francisco florist or perhaps for the florist to use in promotional literature.
