My gaze immediately fell on the sentence about the umbrella. Spanish, a smattering of German and American Sign Language are my only languages other than English. I had just seen an episode of The Paradise from BBC television, and a girl was learning the French word for umbrella. I guessed that "silk" was the other word. Maybe television is good for something after all!

While in high school I began collecting old school text books in my hometown (Middle Georgia-USA). These books were from the early 1900s, and they went through a number of repairs before making it to the all black schools of the 1950s/60s. You would love the beautiful repairs - old wall papers (10 cents a roll) were used to help with the repairs. These books are treasures.

It is all said . Fantastic to see this notebook and through it we can understand why our new generation has changed so much ... Am I nostalgie of these old days ?

I agree with Madame, really sad in many ways how this has all changed so much. Writing, and learning to write beautifully. What a lost treasure!! Thank you for sharing and reminding us Corey. This post makes me concentrate more on the way I write, which will be exciting to try.
Know your excited to go to Willows soon. Safe travels.

"A perfect score is like a slap in the teacher's face." My high school Latin teachers for the 2nd-4th years had the same attitude, and no matter how hard I studied I never got a perfect score on an exam.

Quel trésor!! That book would keep me entertained for hours on end! The beautiful script! The words!! And most of all, the thought of the young French student putting his heart and soul into his work in the hopes of a good mark! Thanks for sharing your find with us. Enjoy your precious time with your family...et bonne chance in your training for the marathon! You are an encouragement to me to get out and start walking again.

I'm a geek. I googled around a bit until I determined that May 13 fell on Saturday in 1899 and in 1905.
