Editor's Note:  I am so pleased Alice had access to a wheel and did not hesitate to use it to get to Allen.  She must have looked wonderful with her skirt hitched up and her curls all windswept.  I wonder if the ride they took was in a buggy or on their bikes. 

August 3rd seems to have been a good day to go to Jamestown and Celeron.
