Agnes Poushay, Syd? ney: The boy that was drowned that we knew (James F. MacAulay), he lived (at River Denys) about 18 miles from our home (at Marble Mountain). And we knew them well, we knew the fami? ly well. He was a third year engi? neering student. And as I under? stood, he was to have some practi? cal experience to get his degree. And the man who owned the boat would be a rela? tive by marriage of MacAulay. I'm not sure what the connection was.... (One person thought he was a boy friend of yours.) No, no. I knew him well and we did corre? spond. I think he did probably have a girl friend. It's just that we were friends and he did write me just before he went on this trip. He did say, "I'll bring you back a souvenir from Holland." But there had been a change in plans.... Sunday, Aug. 18 • ! P.M. Featuring: The Barra MacNeils McGinty and MANY, MANY MORE!
