Pages from Louise Krajicek's LIttle Book
These are copies of three pages from a little booklet that is written in Louise (Louisa) Krajicek's handwriting. The booklet has been hand stitched together with little red threads. As you can imagine, the pages are showing a lot of aging. The first page that shows here is a shopping list. I have assumed that Louise has transcribed the Czech for us on the next page, which reads "Toothpowder, 1 oz praepared chalk, 1 oz Irish root, Borax powder 5cents, fervo Essenz of pepermint 0 cents". Is this a true translation - I don't have any idea. If anyone would like a complete copy of the little booklet, please let me know and I will email the copy to you.
