Oh! Ye Jigs and Juleps

Lee Hadden writes: “Virginia Cary Hudson was only ten years
old in 1903-1904 when she wrote a series of essays of her life. One of
these essays was on the local public library.
These essays were collected by her teacher in an Episcopal boarding
school, and turned eventually into a book published in 1962, entitled “Oh!
Ye Jigs and Juleps.” You can read her essay on the public library and enjoy
life and people as seen through the eyes of a pre-adolescent at
turn-of-the-century America. Hudson had “a refreshing lack of reverence”
for life around her.
