'When Mother was here, no one
would move, now I'm going to
prison. Thank God she need not
see that. I thought I'd found a
simple way to get rich, quick.
Everyone I knew would have
approved : friends and neighbors,
Sy and Lutz, at the temple. But,
it's all turned to animal crackers
now, and by the simplest of
errors I got caught doing what
it was, I thought, I did best.'
