Excerpt From Transcribed Interview:
Rose: "He was very fair. He never did use his whip on us, because one word he said was the whip."
Interviewer: "The word was the whip."
Rose: "Yeah, his word was the whip, but he was a very pleasant fellow. I um ... really. I was closer to my father, than my mother, and my mother knows it. She knew that I was much closer. Although I loved her as a mother; you know, but, ah, my dad was more ... so I used to help him, and I used to read. Read to him, you know whatever I can. From the newspaper, I always used to skip the big words."
Rose: "And repeat the small ones you know, then sort of explain to him, because I couldn't read it I thought I'd explain what it was about."
