Received a snack in the mail today–Mom sent me a book that first belonged to her mother’s mother, my great-grandmama Grace Lee. Poets of the South was published in 1903, and Grace read it in college, as evinced by her signature on the second page:
#12 Memorial Hall
M.B.S. [Mary Baldwin School]
I said, “Mommy, this book looks brand new! It doesn’t look like it’s ever been opened.”
She said, “Well, it probably wasn’t!”
I’ll open it this weekend and read it all the way through.
