GEORGE W. WISHARD (See #148, #186)

A grand, true Christian character and warm friend of mine who had to live his life with a complaining wife. As a home-loving man, he tried to find escape by repeatedly remodeling his house.

This operation was extensive, but inconsequential. It materially improved a very dull house and cheered the owner.
