2. Many national match companies were located in the Akron Ohio area; Diamond Match,Akron, Ohio Match Co., Wadsworth.
3. amounts are not quantity, but prices she has added together
5. Pricey Corset!
6. Interesting how she seems to emphasize Real Silk Socks - is that a sound of disapproval or resentment? Is that price for one pair? Seems a lot to spend for this family to spend on socks!
7. Could this price be for a dress pattern rather than a dress - not much to spend on a dress after the pricey socks!
