In 1914 July 23 was a Thursday.

These days “sago” is often a synonym for tapioca, but they come from different plants. Fannie is very specific: Tapioca is starch obtained from tuberous roots of the bitter cassava, native of South America. Sago is starch obtained from sago palms, native of India. (The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, p. 6)

The Berry Pie might be blueberry or blackberry.
