Jan 7, 1937
I was very much surprised to hear from you but I will try to answer
a few of your questions.
... I live on a medium size farm. 125 acres of land and thirty
head of cattle a few sheep and hens. We make maple syrup and candy every
I belong to Crystal Lake Grange. I am Overseer of my grange,
for the third time in 1937.
...I have to do chores about five hours each day and I cut wood
the rest of the day. I have a large wood pile started but hope to cut
a lot more.
I graduated from high school in 1935 but I took a short course
on dairying at the University of Maine and just finished that December
In my family there is just father, mother and myself. Dad and
I run the farm together. I have wanted to work out but Dad depends on me
as much as I did on him when I was small. I love farm life and shall probably
always live here.
...We belong to the dairy heard improvement association and the
man what tests milk is here tonight.
