Cape Cod Some Baby!

Richard, son of the late President Cleveland (in office 1885-89), was born on Cape Cod. Cape Codders always get a chuckle when they tell the undying story of the weighing of the new baby.

It seems that when this important step was taken, the only scales available were those which Mr. Cleveland (an avid outdoorsman) and his friend Joseph Jefferson used for weighing the fish they caught in the nearby ponds. To everyone’s amazement and amusement, five pounds were added to the baby’s actual weight!
