a ghost from Christmas past

An old book...Robert Burns Complete Poetical Works...given on Christmas of 1899 by my great uncle Jack to his aunt Hattie....leather bound, well loved, a treasured present no doubt (the family origins are Scottish you see.)
It makes one think about what our descendants might find in the category of well loved treasures and what they might deduce from what they find?
In any case, this is still a treasure in my life--reminding me as it does of these two people, one I knew well, the other just barely.
