Runaway Scrape’s Anguish
Janice Woods Windle wrote about her family’s involvement in the Runaway Scrape in her historical novel True Women [The Runaway Scrape, April 2021]. One detail I’ll never forget is that a child who died on the way east was later dug up and reinterred near home, after the danger was over.

Gotas de Oro is the best wine, and I’m not a wine drinker [The Seed Flourishes, April 2021]. I could get used to it.

You state that Sarah Fuller was the first female athlete to play in a major college football game and two weeks later was the first woman to score in such a game [A Big Step, Currents, April 2021]. Wrong on both counts.
Katie Hnida played for the University of Colorado in 1999 and New Mexico 2002–04. On August 30, 2003, she kicked two extra points against Texas State to become the first woman to score in a Division I game.

Editor’s note: We failed to accurately describe Fuller’s accomplishments as firsts in a Power Five conference football game. No slight to Hnida or the other women who have played college football was intended.
Real as It Gets
I must say that in today’s world of polemic divisiveness, your homey, well-written and informative magazine is a breath of fresh air. In a world of hypercommercialism at mind-blowing speeds, thanks for being so real.
