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.
