Notes & Transcripts

West Virginia folklore has a tale about a couple who called for a doctor late one night as the wife was ready to deliver a baby. The country physician turned the rustic farmhouse into a makeshift delivery room. The husband was handed a lantern and instructed to hold it up so the doctor could see. After a healthy boy was born, the man lowered the lantern. Surprisingly, the doctor once again shouted for this new father to get the lantern up as he delivered another baby, this time a baby girl. You can imagine the shock the father was thrown into when the doctor once again insisted that the light be held up. He said, "We can't stop now, it looks like there's another one." The shaky father then asked the doctor, "Do you think it's the light that's attracting them?"
