Editor's Note: Allen has runaway and though he will make entries they will be scarce and not very enlightening. But this is going to be a long absence. I think it's Allen's big push to show Frank that he is his own man. Funny that just 3 years earlier in 1896 Allen seems awed by Frank's speech to the burg.
