Dates, schmates

I just noticed a GLARING date marker in Emily Climbs.  I don't know how I missed it before.

In the spring of her final year of high school, Emily asks Miss Janet Royal to comment on the US presidential election "this fall."  This means that despite all of LMM's efforts to  wrap Emily's Shrewsbury years in a mist of pre-Great War nostalgia, it ABSOLUTELY MUST be 1904 at this point, not 1905 as it will be in my timeline. I am a year off. 

You cannot know how much this breaks my nerdy heart.

However, I am not going to overhaul my entire timeline at this point.  Either I will go back and revise the calendar when I am all finished, or I will decide that it is 1905 and Emily misspoke regarding the election, leading Janet Royal to answer honestly that she never thinks about things that far ahead.

Furthermore, LMM did jumble up the dates enough for me to assume she wasn't committed to any year in particular, so I have a good canonical excuse for not feeling bad.
