Paul's adoptive mother Adele Cannon Howells wrote the following letter to her family about Paul and the above dog

Contributor: Denverbarb Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

December 7, 1921 My very dear family: I don’t seem to be able to write you regularly. I usually put it off until Sunday and on Sunday we have one of the busiest days of the week what with church and generally guests afterward. I wish you could have been here to see David’s homecoming and bringing two dogs from London. Imagine doing such a thing! Anyway, he did, brought two little pure bred wire haired fox terriers with pedigrees a mile long, one for Eleanor Johnson (daughter of a member of the Circuit) and one for Paul, or if you’ll hear me tell it for himself. The boat was delayed as usual in getting in and instead of landing at two p.m. as expected he got off the boat at seven p.m. by which time everybody of course was tired with standing around. Paul had got his white leggings and tan gloves dirty and the powder was worn off my nose. And there came David at last with the two dogs on leases (strong chains) a big suit case, big bag, medium sized suitcase, medium sized bag, portfolio, carry all and a steamer trunk in charge of a porter – nine pieces in all and all belonging to a person who raises nod if we have six or seven pieces when the whole family travels, all of which only goes to show that one really never knows what will happen in this queer world of ours. We had a very nice dinner, Paul danced for his papa and earned a long promised “big dollar” we scurried around to find something to feed the dogs and incidentally found one of them out on the fire escape at the back almost falling off the stairs because he had been taught to go out doors when he had to, and then we spent a pleasant evening in hearing Dave’s tales. Sylvia, Ben, Stuart Kohn, and the McDonalds were our guests. Next morning we took the two dogs down in the car with us to the office and after leaving Dave went to the Cadillac service station to see about the car. The testing man came out with me and just as we got back into the car, the two dogs flew at each other and inspite of their muzzles got their fangs into each others face and legs. I beat them over the head with a chain while Paul scrambled to safety on his little seat but they would not separate so I gave them a swift kick out of the car and when they felt themselves falling they let go of each other. Then we took them inside of the Cadillac office and tied them up while we went out and tested the car after which we put them back into the car and laced them down to different seats so that they could not get at each other and that night took the biggest dog out to Eleanor and so our dog life began. The dog’s official name is “Radcliff Clue Boy” his kennel name was “Jack” which Paul changed to “Bill” and has now changed to “Billie Boy” and wants to change to “Teddy” but we have persuaded him to keep that name for a Shetland pony when he gets one. We are all crazy about the dog, especially Dave and Carrie who is never too tired or fat to cook up some delectable mess for him and if we did not keep a strict watch on her would soon feed him so much that he would be as fat and lazy as she. Billie goes out every time Paul does to play and has he time of his life chasing horses and automobiles not to mention cats, one of which got the best of him the other night and made a big “X” shaped scratch on his head, right down to the bone which is getting better now. He is getting acclimated and has only had distemper, sore back legs and a bruised forefoot and been to the veterinary’s twice since he came. I suppose by the time he has had measles, croup, chicken pox, scarlet fever and mumps we shall be pretty well used to him and now how to take care of him. Just at present he is not overly fond of dog biscuits and I have so much fuss trying to make him eat them as I do to get Paul to eat cream of wheat. Paul is looking very well as his color is so wonderful in winter. He has lessons every day and can read the numbers to ten and is now learning to read from a book. We are trying to teach him by the word picture method which is quite wonderful. He learns three words a day and only works about fifteen minutes on it. If he makes any real progress with it I will tell you more about it as it is a great things for kiddies and used some of their energy in a beneficial thing. We have just had a nice trip to Atlantic City on business and Dave is now away on business in Louisville, Indianapolis and Chicago. We are hoping we can come home for Christmas as we would dearly love to see you all. We do hope this finds you all as well and happy as it leaves us. Paul joins in best love and says he wants to come to Salt Lake to live for all the time. Affectionately, From Ade
