If a girl wants a spotless reputation, no stain on her character, not one speck or black mark to blot her record, she should have no blemish to mar her checkered past reveal itself on her skin. Therefore she should apply to her face this potion to remove freckles.
There once was a girl who was freckled
She looked like an egg that was speckled
The boys were so rude
When she spoke they all booed
It isn’t very nice to be heckled.
Kentucky Receipt Book, Mary Harris Frazer, 1903
