Gentle Readers …

… Does anyone know what a butt factory might be? I am sure there is a very straightforward explanation. I would also be thrilled to learn about any alternative interpretations of the handwriting.

I am still bleaching my eyeballs from the last attempt.

  1. Thanks for the laugh this morning. Google does have its limits! Glad someone knew the answer!

    Might be “Butl”, judging from the way the second letter is formed – definitely not ‘Buth’ (thank goodness).
    That doesn’t solve your problem, though.

    Why a button factory, of course! My grandmother worked in one in Rochester, NY.
