Brook's Snap

30 lb Treacle
18 lb Flour
1/2 lb Meal
1/2 lb Ginger

[Different writing - probably Bertha Caroline Wells, my daughter in law,
who was born 7th February 1873 in Bury, Lancashire. Nice to see that William
chose a bride who shared his mother's love of excessive amounts of treacle.]

I'm picturing Bertha as a plump confection-filled lady. Probably entirely wrong, especially as Liz seems quite a slight lady...
