Puzzle Purse Valentine, about 1790. The British Postal Museum & Archive. A single sheet of paper is folded multiple times. The *puzzle* is to unfold it in the right way to read the verses handwritten on the folds. In smallest size there is a red heart with a message: My dear the heart which you behold / Will break when you the same unfold / Even so my heart with lovesick pain / Sure wounded is and breaks in twain.
