  • Notes 
    • "The Kidstons had a daughter. Belle. I suppose her name was Isabelle. And the old woman--Mrs. Duffus and then she was Mrs. Kidston -- invited my grandmother down for supper. And she went down. And Belle was quite the lady. After they had supper, Belle said to her mother to take Mrs. Jones into the parlour and she'd look after the dishes. So this happened. But they didn't hear any dishes being washed or anything, so Mrs. Kidston and my grandmother went out. Dishes were still on the table. Went in the kitchen, there was no Belle there. Went upstairs, and a ladder--she had eloped with a fellow by the name of Irish, William Irish. And he wasn't considered good enough for Belle. But the old girl had hysterics, and started, 'I might have known something was going to happen--Belle washed her stockings today.' So when we were kids, anything special, we'd always say, well, 'Belle had better wash her stockings."
