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.
