In 1914 September 9 was a Wednesday.

Buttered Beets are probably just Boiled Beets tossed in melted butter, but I haven’t found a specific recipe.

Rolled Sandwiches may be Rolled Bread, the first entry in the Sandwiches and Canapés chapter. It’s thin slices of warm buttered bread, rolled and tied with ribbons.
