Editor's Note: Don't know where Allen stayed up in town in 1900 but not with Alice because she would have been back at her job in service or whatever it was she did.  Curious about his note to remember "City of New York".  Was it a ride or a show at Celeron that he had a special moment on or at?   Or was he thinking of it as a possible destination?  He doesn't strike me as being lured by big cities.
