Pa lost his job and we have no crops and shoes. Mother also lost her job too. Let me introdce myself, my name is Lindsay Lee Hoftezer and I'm 12 years of age. It's during the Great Depression and we have no money. Last night, my baby brother John has died from diptheria and measels because we had no money for medicine. I just lost my brother and I have my two big brothers and my three big sisters. I'm the youngest in the Hoftezer family. But, I'm also short for my age. It looks like I'm 8 years old. But I'm not. I'm 12 not 8.
We have to move in a shack. To get more money, we have to sale some thing I think. I better stop.
