From Interview of Clara Harris Cannon - "You remember about by son, Frank, don't you?  I had some lye water that I had made by running water through an ash hopper.  I was planning on making soap with it.  I had set it out on the back stove while I got breakfast.  Mr. Cannon came in and he didn't like the smell of the lye so I sat it down on the floor.  I charged my mind to remember it.  Tom, my husband's brother, came by, and I was so glad to see someone that I ran out to talk with him, forgetting all about the lye.  It was so seldom that anyone passed by.  While I was outside, Frank, who was five, got up and took a drink of the lye water.  He was sick for several days and lingered on, but it killed him in the end.  I used to sit and study over it."
