Handwritten list of health rules
The following list was written in pencil by a child, inside the cover of a 1925 health book that I bought this week:
Brush your teeth twice a day.
Clean your nails twice a day.
Drink milk twice a day.
Drink 6 glasses of water a day.
Brush and comb your hair twice a day.
Take a bath twice a week.
Don't drink tea or coffee.
Do not eat candy more than once a week.
One can only guess the story behind the list of rules. I think a teacher may have written them on the chalkboard and told the students to copy them. For some reason, this boy copied the list inside his book.
I'm referring to the writer as a boy because he wrote the name "Loyd Wallace" throughout the book. Nearly every page in this book has pencil marks of some sort.
