Borderman manuscript, page 111

in the handwriting of Fred Ronstadt

They made sling shots and
showed me how to use
one. They could kill
doves and other birds
for their mother to
cook. One day while the
younger boy and I were
romping in our back yard
I tore his shirt. I will ne-
ver forget how he cried
telling me it was the only
shirt he had. I took him
in the house and my mother
mended his shirt before
he went home.
