The card reads:

City of Bristol, Guild of the Poor Things

"Laetus sorte mea." (trans: Happy in my lot)

Founder: Mrs Kimmins (Sister Grace)
President: Miss Ada Vachell (Sister Ada)
Severn House, Sneyd Park, Bristol

"Measure thy life by loss instead of gain:
Not by the wine drunk, but the wine poured forth.
For love's strength standeth in love's sacrifice,
And whoso suffers most hath most to give."



The Guild's symbol of a crutch crossed with a sword has 'fight the good fight' written beneath it.
