("Keystolac" was their line of lactic buttermilk.)
Note: Although the The Pure Milk Act of 1915 established grades for milk, it is not definitive in establishing the early date for the form.
Notable is that this slip was a formal way to "leave a note for the milkman" and it presumed that the homemaker was a married woman.
