During the rainy fall weeks of 1931 the two farms sent a family quartet to Seven Oaks school composed of Homer, Andrew, Hope and J.H. The picture of them setting off to school, a kind of reminder of other boyhood days, made such an impression on me that often I find myself stopping to review it again.
This period also gave Eleanor her best opportunity to get well acquainted with her Aunt Mamie, an experience I had coveted for her, as well as Andrew with his Uncle Hamilton. Nothing pleased Eleanor more than to spend days on end at Aunt Mamie's and Andrew liked to work with his Uncle Hamilton.
That was a wholly different phase of the relationship than the youngsters had known before.
