It wasn't my own real self, I think, for little children with my whole heart and never was so 'happy as when I got to have one of uiy very own. — But all aroundmeJ nsed to hear people say how much happier you were without a family than with one and how much better a little family was than a large one and then they'd all figure it up and compare things and all that, you know, until I actually believed myself that a family was a nuisance and that you could be ever so much happier if you hadn't one or at most a lone chick or two.
