18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Thursday, December 5, 1913: Ditto
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
The diary entries for both December 4 and December 5 say “ditto.” The “ditto” refers to a diary entry on 3rd which said, “Nothing—That word I have good use for.”
I’m enjoying browsing through the December, 1913 issue of Ladies Home Journal. Since Grandma didn’t write much, I’ll share some Christmas cake ideas that were in the magazine.
