Editor's Note:  Alice going to work up in Jamestown was in part her father Anders (Andrew) Warn's attempt to separate her from Allen.  As you may recall, Anders did not think Allen a suitable match for his "frail" Alice.

Way at the bottom of the Wiki article on Anise I see that it is used to lure fish.  Otherwise I couldn't account for Allen's need of it unless it was to freshen his breath.  His spelling of the word is unfortunate.
