Editor's Note: Alas poor Clara Longquist. One would think she was some middle-aged man eater. Maybe even a widow looking to snare herself a nice shiny new husband. However, census records suggest she is just 3 years older than Allen. What a difference a century makes. (sound of cougar growl here).
The Lincoln Club is presumably a political organization as it is today. But I don't know who S.B. is. It seems likely to be a girl because he is being so coy about naming a name.
