Mum found the book in our huge book shelf where there are many old books.
Also on the first page which is really interesting it has Beatrice.AH.Evans from.M.W.D. 26:1:1921.

This coin was made in the 1980 . It’s a half dollar. It has
John F. Kennedy ‘s head on the back. On the front it has the falcon
bird that holds a brick on it’s left. Mammy was 16 years old when
she received it from the first American student that my nanny
Killeen had in July 1988. Her name is Christine Rother. Today they
are still in contact. Dodie Christine’s mother still visits nanny Killeen.

When people had no light one time these lamps were used to give light.
A special oil was put into it and pumped up to give the light.
