Reminiscences of Beaver Cove

Item is an audio recording of a conversation with Roddie F. Nicholson and John Nicholson.

Song concerning the building of the house

I can write a letter, I can read a letter, and I can send a letter anywhere!

What subjects were taught in school

Did they write well in the back woods?

Mental figuring

What about the cats whiskers?

Tell us all you know about local history

Diseases and cures of the times

Were people brought into build houses?

No one was lazy in those days. No very rich, no very poor.

Could they make a living off the land now as they did in your times?

Diseases such as appendicitus were certain death in those times?

Was there any heavy drinking in those times?

Story of the Jack O Lantern

Nicholson, John
