Page from a child’s notebook

This is a page from a notebook in which a girl has been practising her handwriting. On one side the letter ‘A’ is repeated, and on the reverse is the letter ‘B’. The child has also signed her name at the bottom of the page ‘Carolina Cary Gratton’. Unfortunately the date which was written next to this is now missing.

This page was found in the roof of Cleve House in Exwick, along with a single kid glove. Items like this are often found in old houses where they are built into walls, tucked into roofs, or placed inside chimneys.
