back at it
Writing today--going well so far. Lots of primary source material for this part of EE's life. Sometimes the guy actually caught a break! The picture above is when he was 17. Put your hand or some paper over all but his face, and you'll see just how young he actually is. I don't think many kids could do what he did--I'd hate to think of what would happen if they tried! Poor Mr. & Mrs. E, pulled into family court--"What do you mean, you didn't know he was too young to work selling newspapers on a railroad line?" "You LET him move out when he was fifteen? A likely story!!" Then EE is put in foster care--the horror, the horror!
