Are You Suffering from the Gout?

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

Friday, November 28, 1913: Can’t say that I suffered from the gout today, even if yesterday was Thanksgiving.


Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Can’t say, but I think that I might be suffering from the gout before the day is over. :)
