LOVE this 1865 ad:

(The clipping is longer than it originally appeared on my screen, so I needed to double-click to get it to the last line, "But I don't know how to do it.")

P. S. TOTALLY going to pester my husband to buy me a waterfall!

P. P. S. Fabulous YA title: I Believe in Andy Johnson

Aw, Andrew Johnson would have been pleased to have at least one supporter!

Waterfalls are okay, but I'd hold out for indoor plumbing...   :moose

Eighteen and he's still got his teeth.  :cloud9 Wonder how old a spinster he'd have taken.

Sounds like an industrious young man.  I hope it worked out for him.

What a wonderful blend of honesty, practicality, and romance. Waterfalls! His accomplishments building a farm are also impressive - especially at such a young age. I think this guy would have been a keeper. I hope he found someone who was his equal.

If you followed down the thread, someone gave an explanation for the butter hoops and waterfalls. Pic attached. But yes, quite an accomplished young man!

The comments on the Twitter thread are hilarious! (And there is an explanation of the three kinds of skirts the young man is willing to buy for his bride.)  :lol4
