Title

Margaret's Earliest Memories

Description

Margaret's earliest memory is of no significance but quite vivid. She recalls that at eighteen months old she was standing at a door looking in, with a window to her left, and before the window was a table with a red-check cloth on it. She was holding a little barrel of tiny, miniature clothespins. Margaret tells also about other memories of her early childhood.
