March 20, 1912

An editorial about borrowing books and not returning them appeared in the June 25, 1984 edition of the Washington Journal, Washington, Washington County, Iowa.  It featured a quote written by Isaac inside the cover of his copy of Burrell’s History of Washington County.

“I. N. Carr’s book.  Bought in Wellman of an agent.  I paid $15 for two volumes, and now:  If I this book do lend, and you this book do borrow, read it through today, and send it home tomorrow. – Get the idea? – March 20, 1912 [and snowing hard.]”
