Love Note

Those of you wishing to compose love notes to your beloved ones this February season may or may not find inspiration in the following from the November 30, 1900 Skidmore Standard, page 4:

The following loving note was picked up in the postoffice the other day and was probably dropped by one of the big school boys, says the Sheridan Advance.  It says, “Dear Fred – The reason I didn’t laff when you laft at me yesterday in the post-office was because I have a bile on my face and kaint laff.  If i laff she’ll bust.  But i love you Fred, bile or no bile, laff or no laff.  Your luvin gurl til death.”

Bile or no bile, laff or no laff, we wish you a most excellent Valentine’s Day.
