Abbie B., age 22, Kansas


Wanted to wash yesterday, but the tub leaked, so I put it to soak. Baked with the new yeast, and the bread is a “perfect success.” Also baked ginger snaps. Mrs. Springer here to see if I would stay with the children while she went with the men on a hunt. Wrote letters until my hand got tired.  *(kansasmemory.org, Kansas State Historical Society, copy and reuse restrictions apply)
