Old Delph and Old Furniture
We have two very old china jugs, an they belong to my grandmother, and she got them from her mother, and we have them as souvenirs ever since. Mrs. Grehon has a very old jug which belonged to a set of delph, and "to a present from Ballinsloe" is written on it. It belonged to her mother. Miss Higgins has two very old parlour chairs which belonged to her mother, and she has them in the house. She is about eighty years, and the chairs are about a hundred years
