19-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Tuesday, November 17, 1914: Ruth and I went to Watsontown this evening to attend the second of the course of entertainments. Didn’t want to go very bad, but since she was willing to pay my way I went.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Wow! Ruth paid your admission fee!
I love it! Sometimes your sister was annoying, but she sure came through when you were feeling down about the end of your third romance.
What was the entertainment? . . . a play? . . . a speaker? . . a musical program?
