Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Why did you go to Watsontown? . . . shopping? . . . running an errand for your dad? . . . having your second experience with banking? . . .
Was it a cold 1 1/2 mile walk? It soon will be winter. I hope that you were wearing Red Cross Shoes and that every step was an utter comfort.
