Wicker, Baby Girl (Birth - July 1890)

It beats everything how different it makes different men act. Some men will laugh, whoop‘er up and get full and act foolish, others will go off quietly alone and hug themselves, but ‘Gene Wicker got Ernie and the dray, went to the woods and got three or four fine evergreens and decorated the house and yard, and declares it is the finest girl ever born. Mother and child are getting along finely.
