      "Somewhere Dad got hold of a large goat, neutered male, who had a considerable ability to butt into things. Naturally he was named after Cooper's Deerslayer, Natty Bumppo. So Bumppo, he became. He was usually tethered near some brush Dad wanted trimmed and he feasted on that. I don't recollect our giving him any other food, or in fact, water. We used to leave pail of water with him, but since he never touched it, we didn't, bother. His stunning portrait attached was taken, of course, by the Commodore. The rest is me (Herb Pickett) with hair."
