84 History of Wake Forest College
"Next morning the sisters tell us of Dr. Wait and his coming after their brothers.
These sisters give a dollar each. `What shall we do with it?' we ask. `Take it for
yourself, do what you will with it. You knew our brother Joe.' The sisters eyes are
full and so are ours. He had fallen with so many others years ago." (Probably the
reference is to Joseph P. Jordan of Henderson County, student 1844-47, a lawyer
and a member of the General Assembly.)
