EMMA BLISS 1838. Sometimes the smallest details get to me. Emma. Bliss. Her. Work. (a period after every word there at the bottom.) Reminds me of my son, and when he was learning to spell, he put a silent e at the end of every word, because, I mean, how were you supposed to know whether or not a silent letter was supposed to be there or not?
