Lester Gladstone Bugbee
Friday afternoon I played at working and got madder as the day
grew later. First, our friend Hamilton paid me a call--an hour long;
then Wagner came; . . . then Judge Raines . . . talked till sundown.
Then I promised myself a long, quiet evening . . . but . . . I heard a
shout outside, "Hey Bugbee, open the door." It was one of my old-time
chums, E. L. Dohoney, of Paris, who is here as a member of the State
Board of Examiners, and he stayed till time to go home. I really enjoyed
his visit, however, and Dr. Simonds dropped in and we had a jolly
time. . ... This afternoon I had not been at work a half hour when a
great big 250 pound man with gray hair appeared before me, wanted to
know if this could be Dutch Bugbee, smiled blandly and invited me to
guess his name. . . . Turned out to be one of father's old friends (and
mine) who used to be a merchant in the great city of Pleasant Point
- another afternoon gone . . .
It is a consequence of the unrelenting drive of life that we
do not concern ourselves much about the influences of the past
which helped to shape our present; nor it it necessary that we
should, because they are a part of us whether we identify them
or not. Yet, for a man like Bugbee who contributed so much
to the enjoyment of his associates and so much of permanent
worth to his period, there ought to be a record to which men
might turn in reflective mood and realize their unpaid and
unpayable obligations. I consciously owed much to Bugbee,
and I have tried to restore a part of his record here. He was
a great soul, a gifted teacher and lovable character with the
qualities of a great historian.
