sooner learned what it was all about than she began to scream   too.
   "Oh Lad — are you all right?" she cried in a tone that was far from reassuring, but he was unable to hear her above the noise     he was making himself. Ina few minutes my father arrived on       the scene.
   "Save him — save my son," Mrs. Greene cried wildly.
   My father looked the situation over and decided that the lad-   der was not strong enough for three people, so he got another and placed it parallel to the one we were on and climbed up and made the rescue, which was no easy matter as Laddy kept resisting.
   The Greenes finally bought a large tract of land in Wayland      and built a brick house. During its construction Mrs. Greene spotted several piles of bricks in our pasture — remnants of a number of greenhouses and a cottage that had formerly been    there and she asked my father if he would give them to her. She was always trying to get something for nothing and when he       told her that she could have them, she was delighted. In a day or   so they were all trucked to Wayland to be incorporated in the    new house.
   Soon after the house was completed we were asked over for a swim in the garden pool. The pool, as I recall it, was about eight feet long and seven or eight inches deep, and all we could do was wade and splash each other. Our clothes got rather wet and my mother telephoned home and left word to have some dry clothes sent up to the Greene's because one of the children had fallen     into the pool. When my father got the message he was given to understand that someone was drowning, and he finally arrived   with Dr. Van Nuys to resuscitate the waterlogged victim !
