The enscription on the back of the card reads as follows:
Evening Hymn of the Huguenot Refugees The original picture from which the Evening Hymn is engraved was painted by Edwin White, N.A. The subject was suggested by an incident in the ancestral annals of the AYMARS. Said the chronicler: "Upon the revocation of the Edict of Nantes 1685, the family fled from Dauphiny, France to Germany thence to England, finally settling in New York 1731. They crossed the German Ocean in an open boat; during the passage a child sickened and died; Other hardships ensued, yet amid all their trials, daily their voices were lifted in morning and evening hymns of praise, with prayers of thanksgiving to God for escape from many dangers and deliverance from a land of oppression."
