Miscellaneous

Isn't "miscellaneous" a great word? Consider definition #2 from Google "(of a collection or group) Composed of members or elements of different kinds"*. This blog post will very much be miscellaneous.

First of all, Happy (belated) Susan B. Anthony Day! Yes, "Aunt" Susan turned 192 years young yesterday. 2020 will be a banner year marking both the Centennial of Woman's Suffrage in the U.S.A. and the Bicentennial of Susan B. Anthony's birth! Oh, & the Greenwich Journal and Salem Press reports that there will be another performance of Bob Warren's song cycle about Susan, Only the Message Mattered, this Sunday, February 19, 2012 @ 3:00 p.m. at the Adams (MA) Free Library^.



Secondly, Happy (be-belated) Valentine's Day!
Mailed to Miss M.A. Moriarty 10 Feb 1907

Finally, I arrived at the office this evening to an old book on my desk. In the book, with it's repaired binding broken, and a few pages loose, were a few scattered bits of paper & index cards. One of these was a rather large index card in the very front which read "Borrowed by Paul Hancock of Vermont- a long time ago-". The book is a first edition copy of The History of Washington County from 1878. So, I say "Thank you" to Mr. Hancock, or who ever it was who returned the book home.

The History of Washington County is back
