>From Ruth BOWLBY CARLETON (excerpt from autobiography):
As I grew older, I was my Aunt Neta's "adopted" daughter. When with her, I was "little May." She took me shopping [at Marshall Field's in Chicago I modeled a French dress] was given it for my labors. I see it now — straight up [down, light blue in a soft material with embroidery at the top] down one side. Aunt Neta [ Uncle Ralph LAWRENCE were in show business, operating a string of theaters, in Ohio mostly. They wanted to put me on the stage but I was a shy child] wouldn't hear of it. But I was taken back stage some-where that I remember, because they had set up a bedroom scene to go on the stage after a movie showing, [for many years I really thought that what I saw on the screen was being enacted on the stage behind it! Aunt Neta gave me lots of presents. The ones I remember most were material to make a dress -- cresonne with bird pictures on it —] candy from New Orleans in various flower shapes. My days as Little May ended when my aunt died soon after her little boy was born. I was very ill at the time, just barely surviving pneumonia, [I do not believe I was actually told of her death —] yet I knew. My grandmother [grandfather took [their grandson]] raised him as if he were their own child.
