with which I follow the road of the Family for a Century

77. An Echo.

In an earlier anecdote we told of the Old Quartet of our courtship days, in which Hamilton and Mamie, Ella and I sang.

When we were all home in 1930 I spoke one Sunday evening at the old Methodist Church at Clio and we heard from another quartet made up of Joe, Boyd, Anita and Laura. It was in the same church where the old four used to sing so often. So far as I know this is the only time this quartet has sung in public, and to those who knew the other quartet it was a reminder of former days. But our boys and girls now have so much better training than we had. They sing much better because the schools have given them training.

Incidentally, there is no set of friends anywhere in the world more interested in the welfare of all of you than the old Clio friends. They follow you with pride, they like to hear of your successes, and they have very genuine interest in your welfare.

It is so nice that the Gartons can now be there to work in that church and with the addition that Homer and Hope are with their parents and Boyd in the fellowship of the church.
