|George, Cow and Dogs in 1930s print|
thanks to Doc Pugh.
Includes a story of David Potter's troubles driving his sisters to school: the third flat of the day leaves him fixing the tire by the light and heat of a "small bonfire" near Sargent, MO.
Mary is advised to have the boarding house serve her liver twice a week to offset anemia (which also affected George's mother, Mary Hasbrouck Potter; a blood test would "be a good plan").
An extended version of the demise of "Betty Cow" suggests that George had a very close call; the cow nearly collapsed on him. "and nothing but the devil looking out for his own saved me."
A good dinner was had on Thanksgiving in spite of it all; "chicken, pie etc."
Dog lovers should avoid the tale of Pat the Dog's puppies on the last page. Plenty of ill luck for the cow and dogs.
|"Art" (Stewartson) is Mary's current boyfriend, |
"Gregory" must have been the previous model, not much favored by George, Elaine or Dorothy.
No picture of Art, though.
