Inscribed on front pastedown in an unidentified hand, and signed by J.B. Nichols 'This collection of letters to & from Mrs. Eliza Nichols is the property of my daughter Mary Ann Iliffe Nichols. B. Nichols. August 5th 1863'; the volume contains only a few letters to or from Mrs. Nichols, so the front board may have belonged to another volume.
