Mucilage

Post by Dana » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:13 am

I found this word in the Leavenworth case written by Anna Katherine green. The book was published in 1878. Mucilage is a gummy, gluey substance that can be found in plants such as legumes or seaweed. Re the rifleman : I remember Johnny clover and Jeremiah Crowley drew and painted pictures, but I don't recall anyone using paste. Do you?

good point. I don't remember paste either.....but they should have had some kind of glue back then....even the carpenters would probably have some kind of glue/paste......maybe this was it. good research
