Potato Salad #16
Take cold boiled potatoes sufficient to make about 1 quart when chopped fine; slice 1 small onion with the potatoes, enough to flavor. Make a dressing of 1 large cup of sour cream, 1/2 cup of sugar, and nearly 1/2 cup of vinegar; pour over the potatoes and set over the fire until it comes to a boil; then take off and mix in 4 hard-boiled eggs chopped fine, same as potatoes; put in a salad dish and garnish the top with slices of hard-boiled eggs; sprinkle with pepper.

Potato Salad #18
Take several cold boiled potatoes, chop, then mince 3 good-sized onions; slice 2 hard-boiled eggs; mix all together, season with salt, pepper, and celery seed, then add vinegar to suit the taste. Or mix the potatoes and onions, then make a dressing of 2/3 cup of vinegar, salt, pepper, butter the size of a walnut; beat 2 eggs lightly, then turn into the vinegar, and stir while pouring.
