When widowed Katherine Tupper Brown told her sons that she was inviting an Army officer named Colonel Marshall to visit them at their home on Fire Island, the lads at once smelt a rat. If it makes you happier, mother, it is all right with me, saidMoreWhen widowed Katherine Tupper Brown told her sons that she was inviting an Army officer named Colonel Marshall to visit them at their home on Fire Island, the lads at once smelt a rat. If it makes you happier, mother, it is all right with me, said Clifton (14). I dont know about that. . . . muttered Allen (12). But soon afterwards, the future Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army received a brief, secret note from Allen: I hope you will come to Fire Island. Dont be nervous, it is O.K. with me. (Signed) A friend in need is a friend indeed. ... A few months later, Lieut. Colonel George Catlett Marshall became Allens stepfather.Katherine Marshall has written what she frankly calls this homespun account because General Marshall has told me that he will never write his own memoirs, his knowledge of people and events being too intimate for publication. The result is a friendly, chatty, modest collection of data and trivia that rarely goes beyond the bounds of domesticity.
