Correction of a Quaker Baby

George Hebben, Mary Klein
On Relevance (March 2021)

Dear Editor: I’ve studied the cover of the Jan/Feb 2021 issue for many minutes, even inverted it. I used a magnifying glass on the reflections in the eyes. I still cannot figure out how one can tell that the pictured child is a Quaker baby.   What’s the giveaway?

Dear George: I guess you have to trust I was telling the truth. Well. Maybe it would have been more truthful to have called this a picture of “a baby of Quaker parents.”
