Recipe from yesterday's book

Here is a recipe from the Westside Sewing Circle's Tested and Tried book.  This one is from Mrs. Louis Henry Brueggemann (daughter-in-law of Clamor).  I have typed it just as it appeared in the book.  Recipes were formatted differently:

Kidney Bean Salad:
Drain the liquid from one can of kidney beans, then add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. celery, and sweet cucumber pickles cut in small pieces, then add a mayonaise or French dressing.  Serve on lettuce leaves.

I think I'd having a hard time making this.  No idea how much celery, how much pickles, or how much mayo?  Looks like something is missing between "a" and "mayonaise"  (her spelling).  Kind of fun to imagine this being served to the "Old Man" (Clamor).
Here is a picture of what the finished dish may have looked like.  I found a very similar recipe on a blog that was taken from a vintage cookbook (minus walnuts plus scallions)
