Source Notes

Date from Alfred Allan Lewis and Constance Woodworth "An Unretouched Portrait." Time from her to Nella Webb, given in DeLL 4/48 (with the year of 1886)

Yoe Stein quotes the biography, "She was born December 31, 1878. She was later to regret that has been in such a hurry to greet the world. By her own perverse logic, one day's delay would have made her a year younger. She remedied this by deducting a few years every now and again until, aside from official records, nobody including herself could be certain of her true age. Whenever anyone got close enough to have the temerity to ask, she would reply, "Dear, I've lied about my age so often that I'm not sure how old I really am."
