MARY JANE WORKS was the opposite of Dr. GOGGANS--a self
centered woman who required pampering. She did not have a very good personality. She was kind of haughty. She had everything she needed or wanted. MARY JANE had a lot of money. She came to Texas twice after her daughter Alice died. Tom had remarried. His new wife, Princella was an excellent dressmaker. Princella got some black silk material and made MARY JANE a dress. Princella treated MARY JANE like her own mother and did all she could to entertain her while she was in Texas.

On one of her trips Princella gave MARY JANE a dinner. The first course was oyster stew. One of Tom & Princella's wedding gifts was $5 for silverware and they used the silverware set bought with it during this dinner. The guests of honor were old people--in honor of MARY JANE. It was held at noon.

MARY JANE was as stingy as could be. Before she was ready to board the train to return to Alabama she lined her dresses with money--bill after bill--and sewed them up.

She lived to be 95 years old. MARY JANE became a Christian about the age of 70. She developed cataracts at an early age--also inflammatory rheumatism. She was well taken care of from Dr. GOGGANS' estate, but through the years managed to turn all surplus over to Adrian. There were six children born into the family.
