Millie gave me several bits of information which I know to be slightly off -- the same date but 1 year earlier or later, for instance. Her information must be treated as approximately correct. She gave me dates directly from her datebook, though, and the other source of much of the information, Alma Stewart, should be treated as equally vague.
