|Title||A Better Father|
|Date||March the 3rd, 1896|
Transcript: Fink's bird is a repulsive creature. But I suppose a prison needs a guard. What surprised me is not how the girl has imprinted upon the monster. After all, one might observe a baby chimpanzee accept a wire replica for its mother. But I did not expect the brute to be capable of forming an attachment in return. Hm. Perhaps it could prove a better father to her than the two she has known.
