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)
