description <p>Lucy Palmer must sometimes<br />have wondered if she would ever<br />have a husband. She was 25 years old<br />in 1890 when she went home to<br />"Ozendyke" in DeSable after three<br />years as a schoolteacher in Malpeque.*<br />The fellow she had been driving<br />out with on the North Shore, Will<br />Ramsay, came over to see her a couple<br />of times but nothing developed. Pope<br />Howard, the local boy who had been<br />crazy about her, saw her once and<br />then disappeared from the scene.<br />Lucy's terse diaries don't tell us why.</p>
