Julius the Street Boy, or, Out West
The New York Book Company
A few years ago I assisted an elderly friend in going through his books before moving to assisted living. As I took this volume from the shelf and opened the cover, my jaw dropped as I saw the name inscribed on the paste-down – my maternal grandfather’s aunt, Louise Wildhagen (1877-1948), who had lived and died over 150 miles away. My friend had no recollection of where the book had come from and gifted it to me on the spot.
