This is Miss Emma Rue. She is head mistress of the Jersey School for Young Ladies. She only teaches one class and that is on Shakespeare's sonnets which every young lady should know and be able to quote at least a line or two. Her senior girls better be able to recite a whole sonnet.
She is available to purchase for 12.99 plus S&H.

She's very happy for Gertrude and Thelma and wishes them well. Gertrude is even expecting (and Violet blushes to say it) a visit from the stork any day now.
Violet is almost 20 and she certainly doesn't want to end up like her friend Ethel. At 24, everyone is whispering she's an "old maid". The horror! Now the only suitors Ethel gets are like Mr. Holmes. He smells like meat and is 30. Of course, he is a butcher, but ugh, poor Ethel.
Violet shudders. She hopes there is a handsome young suitor out there for her.
Violet is available for $15.00 plus $2.00 S&H. She will be shipped wrapped in tissue paper and sandwiched between cardboard in an envelope by regular mail. Contact me at Janetmiller13@gmail.com.

She was betrothed to William, a banker from Boston, and they headed out west to open a new savings and loan in one of the little towns spinging up all over the west.
Marietta's mother told her to get married in Boston before she left but there wasn't enough time and William assured them both they would get married as soon as they got settled.
They arrived in Texas and William ran off with a rancher's daughter named Pearl to Oklahoma. Poor Marietta was stranded in a small town in Texas.
With no money, Marietta couldn't return to Boston and she didn't want to hear the "I told you so's"
Marietta ended up as a "saloon girl". She lives over the Two Bit Saloon in a small rented room and does things that would make a Lady blush.
"But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do," says Marietta "And don't judge me!"
Maybe someday a cowboy will rescue her.
Marietta is available for $12.00 plus $2.00 P&H. She will be sent regular mail wrapped in tissue paper and sandwiched in cardboard. Contact me at Janetmiller13@gmail .com
