I Thought This A Hoot!
I had carried with me a small volume of selected essays and poems of Emerson to kill time while waiting on the Doctor recently. The book was published in 1926 and so I presume this tiny clipping found within from a Newark, Delaware newspaper may be nearly as old. What I found striking was the obviously unfortunate juxtaposition between name and service rendered.
Of course there is no need to fear, if that puts you off a bit, you can always go to the shop in the ad above Mrs. Roach’s, where not only do they serve ice cream, but “temperance drinks” as well. It’s a good life!
Blessings of your choosing, David
