I couldn't believe how fast you sent me this wonderful item! I didn't expect it to have anything on children's cookery (my focus), but because Juliet Corson is SO important, I bought it. What a surprise to find a "Boys' and Girls' Kitchen" column, and a tiny personal fact about J's childhood. I hit the lottery, so to speak. I'm ordering tons of diamonds to fall from the sky on you some lovely warm day. Don't I wish I could do that... - Barbara Abbott
