MEMORANDA
Jan. 29 1910 CFB says Henry in his bath - says "I'm the Jolly Scot, (schromming) going to Candida" meaning "I'm the J.D. Scott (a little steamer at the lake) going to Canada"! Also, when Chan is eating something he likes & Henry isn't (as is often the case) hesitates. Chan says, "Get busy with your pusher, wee, wee" (His name for Henry). Jan 13 1911 Henry said at dinner today, when I asked if he'd have a bit of (lamb) "meat" "No, 'sank you - meat is dead animal!" (the young vegetarian!) I dropped the subject & in a minute Chan passed his plate and said "I want some animal, Aunt Maisie"! They were awfully funny & dear today. Chan can't hear Henry out of his sight. Henry measures him! Mar 9 1912 It is astonishing - or would be to most people) what Alice tells me of JG's change of heart - something I knew would come sometime - but I didn't know just how. He is as foolish in his enthusiasm as he is in many things - giving A. the most absurd & expensive presents - the poor old dear! If she only knew what I read between the lines of what she tells me! He'd be simply wild if he knew she told me anyway. Even what he says about his wife "George"! Jan 26 1913 Hemeny & Chan went to see Florence Fowler twins in Syracuse. Gran'ma asked if they looked alike, "why no" said Henry "One of their hairs is black, and one is light. And one of their faces isn't the same". Chan said Henry didn't like them because they were "too little" - being only 5 1/2 and he six! Jan 14-21 1914 At Jackson Health Resort met Lucie Dodge, (of "mobile") Dr. Kate, Dr. James, Dr. Arthur, Jackson, Mrs. Steele (in office) Mrs. Lenny (her sister, a patient) Miss Lamit (cousin - of Pa.) Miss Maloney (in office) Miss Helen Dummith (?) (in library) Miss Woods (organist) Fred Stevens (porter) Miss Steevees (rubber) Harriet Smith (Stat. Elec. nurse) various patients whose nurses I did not knew. Also nurses & helpers, Mrs. Lily Brayton Magee (patient) Miss Lyons (her nurse engaged to Herm Delong) Burnie Oberdorf (getting over a jag) &c. &c.
