“Years passed. A change comes to the fortune and future of the family. From the almost palatial mansion on St. Mark’s Place. A move is made to the home of my mother’s parents, Wager and Elizabeth Hull. (Foot of 61st St. and East River.) This move was forced by financial loss on the part of my father through the burning of his factories in Providence, Rhode Island where were being made the still renowned “Pointed Screw” of which enterprise my father, with Mr. Sloan, chief engineer, was the financial backer. The fire from suspicioned incendiarism took place the very night the insurance expired. Moral: Don’t’ delay a duty.”Louisa's Parents
