It’s been a busy week at the Hammond-Harwood House, as we’ve been editing, printing, and folding our biannual newsletter. The e-mail version should be going out tomorrow, so if you’re not already on our mailing list go to our homepage (http://hammondharwoodhouse.org/) to subscribe. Since I haven’t had time to generate blog content, I thought I’d point you to another of my favorite blogs. Two Nerdy History Girls is written by Loretta Chase and Susan Holloway Scott, two authors of historical fiction that use their blog to share interesting tidbits they turn up while researching their books. I loved their post today about tight lacing, which just reinforces the fact that only a small minority of 18th-century women used their stays to try to reduce their waist size.
