It is so easy to get completely lost in the paper items from estates. But it is also hard sometimes to split up things that have been kept together for years. So here we are offering four pieces together.
First there is a little gadget called "Recipes for Cake and Cookie Making." It works like a slide rule and as you pull the inner card up you can see the recipes for things like Brownies and Sugar Cookies through a die-cut window. 5.5" x 8.25."
The second piece is a blank recipe book that The Rumford Company distributed to schools as a promotional items. Then the students would write out their recipes into the book. This one was never written in. 5.25" x 8."
The third piece is the Rumford Baking Powder Chart. It is ratty around the edges but still very interesting and useful.
The third item is odd and I keep wondering why it was tucked in with the baking things. It is a Western Union Telegram from May 1909. The message is: "One front quarter bull fresh one hundred fifty arrive tomorrow answer." I guess I probably could find something odd in among my cookery papers also.
