In the Latin American countries of the Caribbean, there is a tradition of celebrating a girl's coming of age. Often a girl would receive an autograph album in which members of her family and special friends would write small remembrances, frequently in the form of verse. Amparo Salinas Mendoza ( 1884-1968) was sixteen years old when this was written to her by her father, my great-grandfather, in the year 1900. Other passages in the album refer to Cuba, the land of her birth, and Key West, Florida, where she spent most of her life.
