Evrybodys poor, arent they, Billy?
All the nicest people are, he replied.
Billy was a war baby. He had a message from General Lee congratulating him on being born, and was quite wise. I was only a since-the-war baby.
I climbed on a cricket table and looked at myself in the mahogany-framed glass hanging over Granmunnys dimity dressing table. I decided a girl with a
shingled head was utterly, hopelessly ugly, and I wondered why God hadnt made me a boy. What place would there be in the world for an ugly girl?
As a child who grew to womanhood in the years following the war of Aggression on my Southern countrymen, I think I am the one most qualified to write this
book. I have told only one womans experience, however, I have been well known in my time as a writer of Virginia history and its people. I cannot say I am
an authority on your heritage and neighbors, but I can say that I am on mine.
Mary Newton Stanard
