Illustrator: Jose Guadalupe Posada

Praises to Mary, and a tender farewell and reminiscences from the viewpoint of a pilgrim returning home. Lower quarter of back page (if folded) contains a certificate of sorts, describing the benefits of pilgrimage as described by Pope Leo XIII and providing blank lines for a pilgrim to inscribe her/his name and date of visitation, making this a potential treasured keepsake for visitors. Leo XIII was pope from 1878-1903, so this could be presumed to have been printed in the latter part of that period. The text, however, makes mention of Jose de Jesus Ortiz, then Archbishop of Guadalajara, crowning the Virgin, an event which took place on August 15, 1904. Both Pope Leo XIII and Archbishop Ortiz were known for efforts in the cause of workers' rights.
