    Notes 
    • "I remember my Aunt Mika, at Nurney, ripping out the Pages from the Family Bible, which my elderly Grandfather had just handed to me. She snatched the Bible from me, and tore out some pages of the Births, Marriages, and Deaths. She said 'Edith will not be interested in these'. What a pity, I was only a little girl, and felt sad about it. I was going to get the pages out of the waste paper basket, so was my mother, but we were both too afraid of my aunt's possible temper to save them. This was the Family Bible that belonged to George & Julia [Eumorfopoulos]; my Grandfather had it after his brother George died. In his Will George was the fairest of all the relations, my mother used to say. I still have the Bible, there are one or two Pages which Mimika missed ripping out!!" (Edith Baker to Michael Agelasto).
