Miss Lydia’s Academy

Miss Lydia's AcademyWhat’s in Mrs. Hale’s Receipt for the Million 1857?

Ink—To make five gallons of good ink, costing but twelve-and-a half cents, take half a pound of extract of logwood, and dissolve it in five gallons of hot water, and add half an ounce of bichromate potash. Strain and bottle it.

Just a quick note. I’m off to Friday Harbor in the afternoon where I’ll be participating in the 150th anniversary of the Pig War. I’ll be Miss Lydia for the 12th time as I teach reading, writing and comportment

  1. We looked for you at the Pig War, but must have missed you. So sad. I love your blog, and I’m going to link to it from my own. I’ve only had one for two months, but I’m enjoying playing with it. I’ll have to take some time to explore your blog later.

    I’ve sent out a request for musicians for the Old Courthouse event. I’ll let you know how that goes.

    • Darn! I was there, but under the trees. It was waay too hot. What day were you there? I did sneak out on Saturday and go out in the long boat to the Hawaiian Chief. The grand ball that night had a pretty wild electrical storm.
