A Victorian Valentine by Monique Nadeau-Saumier
The talk will feature poems and letters exchanged between Charles William Colby (1867-1955) and Emma Frances Cobb (1866-1945) a childhood friend, whom he married in 1897. The couple exchanged cards, letters and poems on St. Valentine’s Day for most of their long married life.
Charles William Colby wrote in his memoirs:
“By far the most important event was that I came to know Kitty [Emma Frances] well, inevitably falling in love with her… No one approached her either in beauty or liveliness, and where she went, admirers flocked round at once”.
Also featured in the lecture, a series of Cranberry glass vases decorated with romantic images and a wide assortment of vintage Valentine cards, from the Colby family and the Stanstead Historical Society’s archives.
