The Babson Boulders
thing I have been doing, which I hope will be carried on after
my death, is the carving of mottoes on the boulders at Dogtown,
Gloucester, Massachusetts. My family says that I am defacing
the boulders and disgracing the family with these inscriptions,
but the work gives me a lot of satisfaction, fresh air, excerise
and sunshine. I am really trying to write a simple book with
words carved in stone instead of printed paper. Besides, when
on Dogtown common, I revert to a boyhood which I once enjoyed
when driving cows there many years ago."
