The baby is Lily Jane White, b. Feb. 13. The other lily grew in our front yard. Lily and her mommy have been intermittently visiting of late. I feel a little bad about crushing the pretensions of others to the superior merits and beauty of their grandchildren. Lily is accomplished at crying, sleeping, eating, and the production of organic fertilizer. We encourage her mother to eat garlic in the hope of educating in the baby a palate in later days; I do not know if this theory has any validity, but it seems worth a shot.
