Sold as "The Scribble-In Book". A small book of blank pages. This one was used by a young girl who was ill and a patient at the Physicians and Surgeons Hospital, Chattanooga, Tennessee, during February 1935.
Many entries written in, most in pencil. These are from nurses at the Hospital, classmates, family, neighbors, friends, and other patients. Many are silly (and sweet) little poems and rhymes, get well notes, and notes of encouragement.
Belonged to : Hilda Rice 411 Magnolia Ave. South Pittsburg, Tennessee

Signs of Wear: - Green glass: is missing an extremely small amount of black paint on the right side of the beaker top - White glass: there is a manufacturing flaw in this paint, the printing was a little off however you can not tell unless you compare the manual images to the glass (still looks great!) - The box is obviously a little worn - The manual has two small tears on the edge of the front cover, however they are not close to any images or words.
