"Ruth Ann Catlin, Died,
Dec 1st 1860
Age 13 years 16 days
In remembrance of your niece and cousin!"

"I got this wet
when I cam home
with my handker-
chief, Amanda
pout it am you
can put it an a pees
of clean paper L. R."

The second note probably means to say:

"I got this wet when I came home
with my handkerchief. Amanda put it on.
You can put it on a piece of clean paper L. R."
