Please Excuse Frances…

Please Excuse Frances…

This note was found while volunteers were scanning school attendance record books. It is from c.1905, and says: “Wednesday- Miss McHugh, Will you please excuse Frances at recess so she can get dinner for me as I am going away. -Miss Lizzie Crow”
Ah, back when getting dinner out on time was more important than a girl being in school all day. Of course fixing dinner did take a lot longer back then compared to now.
