33 or 23

Here’s an entry from the Personals section of the July 20 1920 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:

July 20 1

The same ad ran in the July 21 edition. In the July 22 edition, it was corrected to this:

July 22 1

I wonder how long it took the young man to find out that there had been a typo in the ad. It ran in three more editions after this one – presumably, the young man had a limited budget, gave up on matchmaking through the Personals, or met somebody.
