JIM Gem: Top this, June Cleaver


This appeared in the April 9, 1902 News. June Cleaver couldn't hold a candle to Mrs. Coffey!

Mrs. J.N. Coffey, of this city, is not only an estimable and highly cultured lady, but she is willing to do "what her hands find to do." One day last week she turned her attention to making soap, a necessary article in all well-regulated families, and in a few hours she had canned sixty gallons. This done, she went into her parlor, played and sang a few of the masterpieces of music, and by the noon hour there was a well-cooked dinner for her husband, who arrived from his place of business. Mrs. Coffey's accomplishments are due to her early training.

Jim, Thanks.
But I do believe my First Wife could do that while fixing my three meat, two bread, two gravy, eggs, and home jam with hot coffee, cold milk, and orange juice breakfast - and could draw my warm bath, laid out my suit and shirt, and polished my shoes in far less time - and never even nicked me giving me a shave. Doesn't your mother in law's daughter do the same? - EW
