The Second Email We Sent Today, June 11, 2019
Good morning! The first email we send out on a Tuesday is the HMM WEEKLY PREMIUM NEWSLETTER, featuring content provided solely to the members, supporters, and patrons of Hmm Daily. You are on the Hmm Daily mailing list, but if our records are correct, you not among the members, supporters, or patrons, so you do not get the full newsletter experience. (Emphasis ours). We're certainly glad to correspond with you regardless, and will continue to do so as long as you're interested, but if you would like to read the complete HMM WEEKLY PREMIUM NEWSLETTER, please join our paying community. Thank you for your interest, and please spread the word about HMM DAILY DOT COM. We haz YouTube. ***
For readers in and around New York City, the New York Philharmonic will be playing its Concerts in the Parks this week, featuring "Ociantrose," composed by Hmm Daily's now-12-year-old transit blogger, Mack Scocca-Ho. The series starts at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx tonight, then goes to the Great Lawn in Central Park on Wednesday the 12th, Cunningham Park in Queens on Thursday the 13th, and Prospect Park in Brooklyn on Friday the 14th. The concerts start at 8 and end with fireworks. Hmm Daily's blogging may be a bit sleepier and more erratic than usual.

We're having fun writing to you, but a one-sided epistolary relationship can't help feeling a little weird. Is there anything you want to write to us? Send questions and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We present here for your (and our) continued amusement, delectation, and possible confusion a selection of recipes for antique but executable sandwiches, found in The Up-To-Date Sandwich Book: 400 Ways to Make a Sandwich, published in 1909 and now in the public domain for all to enjoy. Enjoy!
TOMATO AND HORSE-RADISH SANDWICH
Slice a tomato thin and sprinkle with salt. Mix one-half cup of horse-radish with two tablespoonfuls of mayonnaise dressing. Spread thin slices of lightly buttered white bread with the horse-radish mixture, and put the sliced tomato between.
LOBSTER SANDWICH NO. 3
Pound the meat of a medium sized lobster fine, add one tablespoonful of the coral, dried and mashed smooth, the juice of half a lemon, a dash of nutmeg, one-fourth teaspoonful of paprika, and two tablespoonfuls of soft butter. Mix all to a smooth paste and place between this slices of lightly buttered white bread.
OYSTER AND CAVIARE SANDWICH
Butter thin slices of brown bread, cover one slice thinly with caviare and on this lay two raw whole oysters; cover with another slice of bread and garnish with a lemon.
Mix the yolks of three hard-boiled eggs with the roe of a salt herring. Place the mixture between thin slices of lightly buttered bread. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
TOMATO AND NUT SANDWICH
Chop three medium sized tomatoes, add one small green pepper chopped fine, and a half-cup of chopped walnuts; add a dash of mayonnaise dressing and place on a lettuce leaf between thin slices of white bread cut in squares.
