Galesburg, Ill. Febr 26th 1874. Daughter Rachel Hines I hereby present to you this relic of times long past, This was a New Book in Sept. 1821 when decending the Ohio River our Boat sunk in 15 feet of watter, when about 20 inches deep in the Boat, I lifted your Dear Mother & Jas in her arms Out of the Boat and sent them in a skiff to the Virginia side, while I and one other man stood in the Boat and worked the oars with all our power untifl the watters were above our henches, we desisted barely in time to get on top the Boat, which all went under but a strip of a foot wide in center of the top, on which I lay down lengthwise and cought articles of clothing floating out - we had groceries & amunition for to do us one year which with many other useful things were lost - or greatly injured, My little select Libry of New Books, including this one - after a delay of three days we were all aboard again, all driping with watter, I aired my Books on top of the Boat and saved some of them in a damaged condition, and even yet my Dear Children there remains many, very many precious promises to those that obey the Lord and Keep his commandments, you will find the more you read and study this old Book prayer the more you will be pleased with it- Train My Dear little Kinnie to read this good old Book, May the Lord bless the reading thereof To you all, is the prayer of an old parent J. McKinnie (This was written in brown ink)

(In pencil is added) This Bible is 76 years old. Written by R. Hines Ottawa (Kansas) New Years eve Dec. 31st 189?
