Margaret Rebecca Piper (Mrs. Chalmers) was born in 1879. She is the author of: Sylvia's Experiment: The Story of an Unrelated Family (1914), Sylvia of the Hill Top (1916), Sylvia Arden Decides (1917), and The House on the Hill (1917). An excerpt from Wild Wings reads, "Did tell you? The boy fumbled sulkily at the leaves of a magazine that lay on the table. "I took the car out and, when I was speeding like Sam Hill out on the Florence road, I struck a hole. She stood up on her ear and pitched u--er--me out in the gutter. Stuck her own nose into a telephone pole. I telephoned the garage people to go after her this morning. They told me a while ago she was pretty badly stove up and it will probably take a couple of weeks to get her in order." The story came out jerkily and the narrator kept his eyes consistently forward during the recital."
