Sleep No More

This June I returned for a second visit to the McKittrick Hotel for Sleep No More. (It was June when I went last year as well.) I nicked this scrap from the room with the coffin; the coffin was covered in these, but this one (among others) had become detached, and was lying on the floor. Upon it has been written with quill and ink A Prayer for a Deceased Woman; to wit:

We beseech Thee, O Lord,
In Thy mercy,
To have pity on the soul of Thy handmaid;
Do Thou, Who hast freed her from the perils of this mortal life,
Restore to her the portion of everlasting salvation.
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen.
