    Notes 
    • From Devere Allen: "She was a schoolteacher for some years, having tau
      ght in the Avondale, R.I. school near Watch Hill, where her uncle Jonat
      han Allen, another able teacher, also had taught, and in schools in the n
      eighboring town of Stonington. My uncle Everett Watrous possessed one o
      f the most alert and independent minds I have ever met, and he undoubte
      dly influenced me considerably while I was young. He used to tell with r
      elish of how, when it was quite "devilish" to do so, he read Darwin's O
      igin of Species and kept it prominently displayed so that when clergym
      en called, it would serve as a gage of battle! He had a fine sense of h
      umor, and although he had no children of his own, every child was his, a
      d few men ever loved children more. Of him I wrote, in the Westerly S
      un, June 6, 1922, a sonnet which, if hardly worth preserving as poetry, c
      ame from the depths of my childhood experience with, and affection for, m
      y uncle:

      ONT HE DEATH OF MY UNCLE, EVERETT WATROUS

      I will say farewell with song, for like a song,
      Your memory will linger through the years.
      Just as your smile would drive away the tears
      From childish eyes, tears now must not flow long.
      Yours was a joyous heart; it would be wrong
      To let grief conquer, or to yield to fears;
      It was your happy way that persevere
      In spite of sorrow, gratitude is strong.

      Some will remember you for work well done,
      Some for the keenness of an eager mind;
      But I, because you were supremely kind
      To little children, whom you always won.

      No finer monument could ever be
      Than to live on in children's memory."
