Self-Flattery

15-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Sunday, March 19, 1911:  I went to Sunday school and church this morning. I saw such a pretty baby today with a head fairly covered with thick auburn hair. It struck me that I looked something like that baby when I was about her age. I had so much hair then with a bit of waviness in it, and dimples in my smiling cheeks, but this is enough flattery for one night. I must scratch gravel off  and to bed, and to my sweet beautiful dreams, so vivid and real.
