The Dinner Table – Strength Magazine – May, 1924

As I floundered through years of difficulties in my job of making a home, I gradually became aware of two facts. First, that upon me largely depended the health, happiness and usefulness of our entire family. Their achievements would always be limited by the food that I provided for them to eat. And second, that in order to provide that food clay in and day out three times a day the year round, I would have to have something more for an incentive than the pleasure of their happy face s for a period of twenty minutes or half an hour while they demolished the results of a couple of hours of my painstaking labor, in addition to the prospect of another half or three-quarters of an hour cleaning up the mess afterwards.
