  1. Talked to Aunt Jessie Brewer Smith yesterday. She is in her 90’s and enjoying the diary posts. She is the only one of Grampa Brewer’s children still living. She told me that the Betty referred to in his diary is NOT Betty Covell. It is a women who worked at “Carl’s” restaurant in Manomet. Gram took her in for the summer because she was homeless. The other thing she wants readers to know: Grampa called his daughter, Jessie, “Ski” …. he also named the property on the pond SkiBo which he told us means Red Squirrel.

You may have all these treasures in your possession but wanted to be sure! Thanks for all you do. By the way Aunt Jessie said when she thinks about her “happy place”, it is always about the house she grew up in with her family!
