Title Priority and Authority
Description We had hauled and barned two loads by noon time. After lunch was a time for a brief rest. But instead of resting, I joined with my brother and his pals in playing on our two swings which hung from the high, sturdy limbs of our crab apple tree. This tree also provided shade for our playground next to the shanty - a fifteen-foot-high, two-room, gabled-roof house where Mother did the washing, and where we separated the cream from the milk, and where we stored coal for the winter. Soon brother George, six years older than I, called: "It's time to hitch up and go to work." I was having fun in the swings - we had a contest and then jump the farthest.

The jolt of landing knocked out my wind. But George and Mother checked me over and I was soon able to stand up and be counted. It wasn't long until I was back on the wagon tromping hay. 59
