Dear Alice (Part 3): Nanuet, New York Autograph Book

    I photographed this entry in Alice's autograph book both because it is legible in the photo, and I am not sure I can do the signatory's name justice. I suspect the name is Alda Gerret, but I have been unsuccessful in searches for any Alda Gerret, Ferret, or Yerret.  Notice Alice's "For-get-me-not" in pencil notation. She did not treat every entry with the same notation. Although Alda moved, some of the entries marked "forget-me-not" do not indicate the signer moved. One wonders if the "forget me nots" recognize Alice's closer friends. Arnold, the signatory on the following entry (below), did not sign his last name and his poetry leaves a little to be desired. However, Alice applied the "forget-me-not" to his page.
