Bessie states: "There was an old cemetery on a hill above the hospital site (Obrajes), and you gathered some old bones that were protruding from the ground. You gave these to the nursing school for their studies in anatomy. You kept for yourself a skull that you put on the window sill as a special protection. You knew that the Indian workmen were very superstitious and they would not bother anything you had while the skull was there. The skull was also used to secure the autographs of all your friends. You even secured an autograph of a movie star who was visiting in LaPaz."
