Illustrations of Walter, Grace and Giles.

We think Walter is a great fellow. never having spoken to him before, he startled us one day when we were sitting quietly having teas, by walking straight in, looking down at us, and announcing "I've come to see if my son Giles' name is still on the cement steps I Made." It was and is, and we enjoyed making him stay for tea.
