Editor's Note: Allen plans on staying away because I'm guessing he's had his warmer clothes sent on to him. Obviously, the family knows were he is but we don't know how much contact he is having with them.  It seemed to be his father he broke with but I really don't know.  May Taylor could have been a Chautauqua Girl who worked the grape season too.  I found a May in the area who was one year older than Allen.

The very next year Hattie Warn pays a visit to the Cass family disrupting Allen's studying.  Now, is she there to confront him over keeping her daughter out all night XXX or is she simply there to make wedding plans?  Hattie doesn't turn up much so I'm thinking she's ticked off.  Alice would be there too if they were making plans.

Don't have a clue who Unkle Alix is but the P.H. Coeburg who passed away yesterday in 1900 was actually Henry Colburg who was married to Alice's Aunt Martha Warn.
