Abbie B., age 22, Kansas


Rainy and cold all day. Hope it will clear up and not hinder the plowing. Yesterday I baked and cut up the turkeys. Put some in a jar, and covered it with brine. George is helping plow. Came in yesterday with a chill. I told him of the salt cure.  *(kansasmemory.org, Kansas State Historical Society, copy and reuse restrictions apply)
