they had different operations on her feet-- feet kept turning back. She was a smart, dear child. There was a place in Colorado where they were promised a cure. But they needed the money and they didn't have the money. But I loaned them the money to send the child there. And the operation was suc? cessful and the feet stayed straight. One morning they went up--she didn't get up at her usual time--and they found her dead in bed. It was too much strain on the heart, all those operations. You know, I never forgot that child. I still see her plain as when she used to come in the store. (What year did your husband die?) 1933. My husband developed ulcers in the war.

Then he was to go to hospi? tal for X rays. And I couldn't leave him--I couldn't do what I was doing--I'd been working in a store. So I went over to the hotel. I said, "Can I get a job here?
