18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Monday, September 22, 1913: Walked the coats I borrowed yesterday back this morning.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
The previous day it rained while Grandma and her sister Ruth were at Sunday School at the Baptist Church in McEwensville. They were particularly upset because Ruth “had on her bestest dress.”
Someone who lived near the church must have lent them coats. I wonder if Ruth managed to keep her dress dry.
