|William Tell Steiger, undated|
In November 1828, William Tell Steiger wrote in his notebook that he had presented his beloved Ann Maria Shriver with an anagram: "O evil here I am at."
He continues, "she deciphered it and returned an anagram in answer containing the following: 'That love deserves to be returned.'"
Three years later, the couple married on September 20th.
We leave you to puzzle out the first anagram. And yes, Ann Maria Shriver was the great-great-great aunt of journalist and First Lady of California Maria Shriver.
