The Play Was Interesting . . . Or Not

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

Friday, March 24, 1911:  Ruth and I went to a play tonight or rather I went with her. Carrie Stout went along with us. It was up at the Town Hall, given by the senior class of Turbotville. I thought it was very interesting, but Rufus didn’t agree or didn’t seem to agree. I suppose by that she wanted it distinctly understood that her queenly presence had attended many better plays than that insignificant one.
