I'm in the hospital waiting to get a cardiac cath after a nothing heart attack on the 29th that left no damage. I'm working from my phone. I expect to be annoying everyone again from my home computer tomorrow. Monona

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Information Needed
Does anyone know of a lab that could analyze a 120-year-old slice of wedding cake for ingredients? We would of course have to factor in oxidation, etc.. This is related to one of our school's founders and our museum group would like to recreate the cake - possibly
for alumni socials, etc. Thank you for considering this very unusual request.
