17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Friday, July 26, 1912: Just a month from today and study hours will be resumed. How glad I will be when they arrive. Carrie came over this afternoon and evening.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Carrie refers to Grandma’s friend Carrie Stout.
