My Late Great Grandmother Explains

I was born in Sheffield on the 16th of December, 1897 at number seventy six ... oh, I've forgotten the name of the street. We'll have to leave that. This would be in Sheffield, Yorkshire.  So I'm a Yorkshirite. They say the Yorkshire people bite dead or alive.  They hear all and say not.  They take all and give not.  And if they do aught for anybody, they do it for theyselves.
