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

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Grandma–How late were you? . . .a few minutes? . . half an hour? Weren’t the clocks working quite right at home?
According to Wikipedia, wrist watches didn’t become popular until the 1920s. What kinds of clocks did your family have? . . . a wind-up alarm clock? . . . a wind-up pocket watch? . . . a grandfather’s clock?. . . some other kind of pendulum clock?
