What I like most about doing this ephemera blog is the "research" I get to do. I use the term loosely because let's admit it, when doing research on the net you just never know how valid the information is. So anytime you see me post anything, take it with a grain of salt. All I've done is search around through Google trying to find out what pops up when I do word searches. I try to find as much information as I can and then I regurgitate it back through here to you. Now, due to my lack of net access I can't do the research. All I can do is post something I find very humorous and hope you enjoy it.
This is from a magazine called "Comfort" which was basically a rag sent out to rural folks full of bad advertisements, get-rich-quick schemes, a few stories, and a few household hints. The magazine also included columns wherein readers would write in to the "Comfort Sister's Corner conducted by Mrs. Wheeler Wilkinson" or to "Comfort's League of Cousins Conducted by Uncle Lisha". The following is to Uncle Lisha in the September 1931 issue. I read this the other night and then thought "Oh, I so have to post this!" If nothing else I know Eloh is going to laugh and that's a good thing.
Enjoy! This is one you'll want to email friends just so they can shake their heads and laugh.
