This reminds me of a book I have! Its called American Fashionable Letter Writer. It is from 1830!!!!
It was falling part so I used my arts & crafts skills to hold it together & make jt safe to throw in my purse. Ive read it front to back. I love it!!

"Take care. If I find she is withdrawing your affection from me, that I do not come down, and pull her cap for her. As for yourself, if you were within reach of my little tongue, I would give you such a peal as should make you remember it for sometime to come."

:-O !!!!

So I am joining :)

Hahahaha no no no!!!

Its from a little girl giving her older brother a verbal lashing because he is away from home & has started spending time with another young girl. Or maybe she has manifested this from jealousy. In any case, she wants his attention.
I love this book. When my daughter's kindergarten teacher became unreasonable & nonaproachable, I 'fashioned' all of my letters to her using this book. Amused me so!!! Lol!!
