Subject: RE: The Dutchman (M. Smith): meanings?
Margaret is most definitely the Dutchman's wife. I heard Michael Smith say so.
Your understanding of memory loss is not right. Memory loss manifests itself very differently in different people. Based on my own experiences with relatives and friends who've suffered with, and died of, Alzheimer's, it is very plausible that Margaret can remember the Dutchman's youth while he can't.
