“After Christmas supper, the five of us walked across the moon-lit fields to Sully to see their Christmas tree. Our cat Tim accompanied us and sat beside the door until we were ready to go home… the Christmas tree, a big cedar, stood in the hall, bedecked with glowing candles, strings of popcorn and cranberries, and cut-out paper angels. To a six-year old, this was a magnificent sight.”
–Minnie Middleton, about Christmas 1885
