Mrs. Pratt was aged c.5 years when she performed the play at Nitshill, Glasgow

at Halloween in the fire houses and in the hospital opposite. Being the youngest,
she played the part of the Doctor. Shortly after, the family moved to Eastwood,
Notts and tried to continue the custom there, but it did not catch on.
