In Amherst at the Historical Society, 72 people (we counted) turned out on a recent Monday evening for stories. Among them, Ernest Mack, who heard me talk about David Griffin of Auburn and remembered a story. He said:
“I knew David Griffin. In fact my cousin married his sister, so she was an aunt by marriage. They had two daughters, Bernice and Persis, a willing team. Bernice was willing to do all the work, and Persis was willing to let her.”
One more from Ernest:
“There was a lawyer from Milford who was so crooked he couldn’t fall down a straight flight of stairs.”
There’s a picture for you. Thanks Ernest, for the stories. Everybody in the room loved them. All 72 of us. 73, counting me.
