Editor's Note: Whose tobacco? Allen is usually more forthcoming with his smoking but he doesn't say "my tobacco" or in "my room". Now is it a general rule that no tobacco should be upstairs in the house? I wonder.
The camera seems to be a bust or else Allen's ability to develop the photo is. He makes no mention of the complete process or a dark room, etc. I wonder if he is missing some information.
I wish we knew more about the pensions that were written up and for whom. What was the fund they were drawn from? I will have to pursue that.
It's good to see that Allen is still trading things with the Kineston brothers.
