Editor's Note: Allen is mostly around the house on August 4th.  It is odd how days tend to fall into a pattern.  I wonder what the family discussions were like over Aunt Em.  How horrible the time must have been for them all.  It is clear that Allen was staying well clear of the situation because he never seems to join his ma + pa when they head down to see Em.
