|Guest Books and Autographs|
|Most homes in the 1800's contained guestbooks or autograph books allowing visitors to leave|
a note or a thank you to the hosts.The contents of this section are from the Nichols and
Engel's homes in Wyanet, Illinois and Argentine, Kansas. The penmanship in this section is
really amazing. It is some of the most artistic and elegant that I have ever seen.
The passion and intensity in the poetic writings are a historical tribute to the
character of the people in that era.
