DescriptionLewis reads the poem he wrote for his sister Beaty's (Beatrice, b. 21 March 1925) birthday. They had one scribbler cut in two when they went to school as children, as the family did not have much money. Their father died young at the age of 47 and left a big family. Beaty married in 1945 and moved to Change Island, then moved to Lewisport in 1970. She had three children, two girls and a boy. She ended up living in her cabin in Lewisport.
