Title A Vignette
Description Documentation: I lived in the house from the time of my birth in 1907 until 1925; then returned and lived there again from 1929-1931, and again in 1933-1934, and the summer of 1935.

They helped me correct a couple of errors, and added two or three facts - such as the lighting that helped strike down the Carolina poplar tree. They both corroborated the statement about the rose bush--and other facts. In the main, they substantiated what I have written here. Matter of fact, one of the owners lived in the house as early as 1922, and I boarded and roomed there when I returned to Ephraim after 1925. A VIGNETTE Jenny Lind M.

I still remember the magic of the printed notes, and the wonder I felt as I repeated the melo- dic syllables of the new word. I had never seen a spray of perfume, but I could imagine and dream. As I played, I was certain the heliotrope must be one of the most beautiful flowers. Then someone gave me three tiny bottles of perfume. They weren't at all like the intricately shaped vials of today with their fancy glass stoppers. There were cylindri- cal, perhaps two inches high, with stubby brown corks and tiny flowered labels, but, oh, the magic they brought as I read: Lilac, Wild Rose, and most fascinating of all, Heliotrope!" I knew the fragrance of lilac and wild rose. They were as familiar to me as the brightly colored sweet peas which grew along the fence in my mother's flower garden. How many times had I come home with my arms filled with lavender blos- -72-
