Swimming Hole. Near Weverton, NY
Later bulletin from Albert Grubel: two hundred and eighty people were killed in car accidents on Memorial Day, well over the newspaper prediction, and forty-one had been ‘drownded’ —three hundred and twenty-eight in all. A party had gone out to pick flowers, and one of the girls had strayed away, and they hadn’t found her yet, and bloodhounds had been sent after her. A little boy had also strayed, and bloodhounds had been sent after him, too.
