[A Small Merchant]
“Living alone as I do now is a handicap in several ways. I find it extremely hard to get the proper things to eat. I necessarily must keep my expenses down, and it's almost impossible to get the fresh vegetables I like in my meals. I never get out to anything that is going on. If I was married to the right kind of a woman she would drag me out to church and other places once in awhile. Like it is, I have not darkened a church door in I don't know when. I get away from here two or three times each week long enough to go to a picture show and occasionally get away to see a ball game. Last week I got to see my grandmother. It's the first time I have been to see her in over a year. If I married I feel like some of this would be changed. One would feel more like he was living and a part of the world.
