When I was a very little girl, my Father was sent to Prague Oklahoma to manage a lumber yard there. We lived up over the office until my Father could build his own house. I do remember my brother and I climbing over stacks of lumber, digging into tar barrels and chewing it. Later after our house was finished, I remember helping Mother, playing in our lovely yard, garden and in the barn. We had a cow, and lots of chickens that I loved to feed.

Because I was a very lonely child most of the time as my brother was always out playing and doing Boy things and Mother thought I should stay inside most of the time, I had a lot of pretend friends. One time, I was about three and half or four, I ran away from home to visit a pretend friend, or just to go, I don't recall. One of Mothers friends gathered me up and took me home, so I really didn't get very far.
As I grew up Mother still kept me close to her and I could only play with children of her friends, most of whom had no children my age, all much older. Then when I was about nine (1913) we moved to a little town called Eufaula, Oklahoma, where my Father and an Uncle put in their own lumber yard, and I was at last allowed to go to school.
