Feeding time at the zoo: There is now quite a zoo here, what with the innumerable birds at the New Upper, a dozen or so squirrels about the Middle, a whole flock of pigeons, and many stray dogs, mice, cats, and rats. One boy has even gone so far as to build a little causeway from a nearby tree to his window on the second floor, so that the squirrels may get at their food easily.
A note about a fortunate squirrel: A baby squirrel is now enjoying all the benefits of civilization on the second floor of the New Upper. And a not so fortunate one: The Shattucks rudely evicted a little flying squirrel who had hibernated in one of their clinkers. He had constructed a comfortable home with cotton waste and three odd rowing socks.
