A Man Can Love Two Women (1880)
Letter From Calamity Jane to her daughter Jane

Don’t let jealousy get you, Janey.
It kills love and all nice things,
It drove your father from me.
I lost everything I loved except for you.

A man can love two women at a time.
He loved her and he still loved me.
He loved me because of you, Janey.
