Editor's Note: Is hiring money a loan? I can't think of what else it could be.
Today is the birthday of our cousin Phyllis! The other day she told me a funny story of an entry in Frank Cass' journal from the year she was born. In effect it said "Rollie and Esther had a baby girl named Phyllis. I am going to give her $50." Very sweet, right? However, when Willard had his son a few years later, Frank said something to the effect "I'm going to give him $100 because he's a boy"! (Exclamation mark all mine)
