Editor's Note: I'm guessing Rollie's velospeed was really a "velocipede" that was either a bike powered by his feet on the ground or some sort of tricycle since he was only 6 years old.

In 1899, someone in the boarding house has definitely gotten a hold of Allen's journal.  Not only is the script not his but for all his church going, Allen has never revealed himself to be particularly religious in his journal.  I think this is the first time God has even been written.
