Thanks to a dumb doctor little Ruth starved to death!

Mom made our underclothes from hundred pound flour sacks!

Mom never went to school so she never learned to read and write!

At that time it was called “Relief”. He gave mom a cheque for Three Dollars and Twenty Cents!

The axe slipped and he cut his foot down to the bone!

When one Boil healed up there were two more that swelled up and festered!

We ate boiled potatoes three times a day!

The walls weren’t finished! Just two by fours showing!

I left for school in the dark and came home in the dark!

The wood sold for three dollars a wagon box full!

He had newspapers on the table and when they got dirty he would add another layer!

I put the few clothes I had in a flour sack. If I walked across country it was eight miles to the highway!
