Oliver Farm – We have twelve little lams now and is a little to cold for them. We had one get chilled so I brought him in the house, put him in some warm water for a while, then rubed him off good and dry. Grandma got the old whiskey jug out and gave him some warm milk and a table spoon of whiskey. We all tell her she is starting this young man out the wrong way, but now the little lam is growing good and looks just fine. Excerpt from a letter to Tommey Lawton from Wlater Oliver, March, 1940.
