Wea. THU. DEC. 4, 1902 Ther.
Picked up shingle, etc in A.M. Andre, Hattie, Ruth + Ma came over. Ruth stays all night. Are weaning the baby.
Editor's Note: The baby was Willard. Nice to know that babies were nursed for at least a year and even nicer to know that Ruth was willing to take a hit for the team because you know darn well she was there to answer the baby's cry to keep him and Alice apart to wean. Frankly, Alice's breasts probably needed a damn rest in preparation for baby number two which was seven months away.
