Perth Amboy’s Bachelor Dad

This article, featured in January 28, 1921 Perth Amboy Evening News describes a bachelor, named Newton A McCully, who adopted seven children. He discusses how his children learned to pick up skills to assist around the house and contribute to the family, ensuring that everything remains in top shape. He also mentions the importance for the children to learn from each other. However, the hardest part for him is when he is assigned to his position at sea. At least he always knows that he has a full house waiting for him when he returns!
