Yesterday’s answers:

(D) Light a bon fire in the dining room

Shortly after her [Martha Cannon] return from Chicago she wrote to Angus: “James is a terror. I sometimes fear his growing up. Imagine, if you can, the combined stubbornness of his pa and ma compressed in his little make-up. . . . He turns the hot water into the bath and floats things in for boats—balances his belly across the edge running the risk of scalding. Yesterday he found a match somewhere in spite of my secure hiding place, came running to me stating he had ‘started’ a bonfire in the dining room and put a dish over it to keep the smoke in.’ ‘Tis like herding a wild bull in a cramped pasture—destructive. He wants to break, cut and open everything.”
