Title Andrew Peter's Promise
Description It was 9 a.m. before the Olsens with their two Model T's air as they left Ephraim and drove south. All went well until di smay the road 1eadi ng through the ra i1road tunnel had been "We better go back, Dad," Ali suggested. "We'll never get through this." "We're not going back!" exclaimed Andrew Peter. "I promised Pete I'd go to this funeral and that's what we're going to do." t.nously over the steep bank, Martha sat motnon'ess hardly daring to breathe as one wheel slipped into a deep gulley made by the flood water. She wanted to get out and walk but knew that was impossible. Just as she thought they were on niore sure ground again, the car sank into the sticky mud and stopped. Andrew Peter climbed out of the car and looked around to see what could be done. As he kicked around in the mud with we can pry the wheels loose with it."

There was enough road not covered with mud and water that the cars could get through. Martha kept her eyes focused on the road ahead. Her fingers ached "from clasping then together so tight. As they rounded each precarious curve, Martha wondered if the floor board under her feet would last to their destination. -23-
