Monday, May 17, 1926

Dead tired. I talked to Papa about the twins and he told me to tell Nell to stop boiling their milk and to put lime water and essence of pancreatin in their feedings, so I wrote to her right away. Was too tired to do any work anyway. I do hope I can help do those babies some good. Bess says she won’t listen to anybody and seems to think they are ok although they can not hold their heads up at five months. But I suspect it is Bess she won’t listen to. She thinks she knows so much more than anyone else, and really knows the least, and is overbearing I don’t blame Nell for not heeding her.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "By the time the twins and I were running around and playing my recollection was that they were as husky and big as much as I was."

By the way, here's a picture of Bess from when she was younger.)

  1. Aunt Bess was a big know-it-all. I understand she tried to boss everyone around, even her brother Gilbert (my father, Ruth's husband) During WW1 she eloped with a soldier then had it annulled when she found out he had a wife & family in the East.
