Note: Bettye Heinrich, emailed email@example.com, 6 Dec 2012: "Thanks for letting me know the school booklet arrived. Truth is I do not know how long I have had it. I have not bought any old cards, albums, etc for at least 15 years. I am guessing that it was in a batch of cards that I bought and I just never paid any attention to it. I was sorting through them a few days ago and that is the first I remember it being among my collection. It surprised me to see what excellent condition it is in since it was from 1915."
