Editor's Note:  I'm guessing the sugar bath is where they stored the sap to boil or where they filtered it.  I don't know because if you Google it all one gets are beauty product websites.

I posted this picture because Morris Cass and his twin brother Marvin were born on Easter Sunday.  The Easter postcard I put up on Sunday was actually a birthday card to Morris from a little friend.
