  1. Thank you! I will enjoy reading it and will return it next month. But you won’t be at the meeting! Before the October meeting I’ll volunteer to pick up from you any other books anyone wishes to borrow and will take them to the meeting.

  2. I would like to borrow, Everyday Life in the 1800s – a guide for writers, students & historians by Marc McCutcheon

  3. Sheila,
    I brought the book Everyday Life in the 1800s to the Oct meeting, but you weren’t there. No problem. Jim Elstad wanted to borrow it. I gave it to him. So now please mark it as checked out to him.
