Mulberries along the Charles

There along the Charles River was a man with a sheet spread out on the ground under the mulberry tree, shaking the mulberry tree, freeing the tree of its white mulberries, mulberries which landed unharmed on the sheet, just like in the old days, in Wilbraham, before the tornado, under the white mulberry tree . . . Who was he and how did he learn of this ancient way of gathering mulberries . . . but then this was Watertown, Massachusetts, where many an Armenian immigrant settled, and many an Armenian live to this day . . .
