Tuesday, February 17, 1914: Miss the mail now. Don’t get it till evening. Makes me so mad that the mail carrier is too lazy to bring it here.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Yeah! I’m glad you finally got your mail (even if it didn’t come until evening).
DID YOU GET A VALENTINE? Please don’t leave us hanging!
