From Modern Priscilla Cook Book (Year and author unknown)

This cookbook was given to Margie by her grandmother, She (her grandmother)
received it from her mother when she was married. We don't know when or
where Margie's g-grandmother got it. It is so old and worn that the pages
are starting to flake, and the front cover cannot be read so we don't know
who wrote this one. There is also no dates or cover pages in the book.
