Inscribed by the author to Jason Lee's niece, Mary Louise (Pittman) Jones (1856-1948), who was the daughter of Anna Maria Pittman's brother George Washington Pittman, Jr. A dried Mission Rose is affixed to the ffep. According to the pioneer rose preservationist, Mary Drain Albro, the rose bush was brought by Rachel Beers from Boston in 1836 when she and Anna Maria Pittman sailed around Cape Horn on their way to the Jason Lee Mission near Champoeg. It has been reported that Rachel gave the rose to Anna Marie on her wedding day to Jason Lee; the rose was planted at the Mission.

[An additional notation on the ffep appears to have been made by Mary Louise (Pittman) Jones's niece, Martha Louisa ''Mattie'' (Pittman) Anderson, regarding their relationship to Jason Lee's wife.]
