I capitalized the surnames for emphasis

This is a list my mom found when cleaning out an old trunk. It came out of a cookbook, that was handwritten, dated September 23, 1910.

The front page of the cookbook says:

"Dedicated to our dear friend Amilda this 23rd day of Sept.1910 by her dear friend Shone Madeline FUSSY"


This list fell out of the cookbook: (1907)
