Editor's Note: Laura Raynerd may have been Laura Reonnard born in 1876 in Portland, NY.  Not sure why Allen would back out except that he was just fooling around with the other girl.

I'm guess maybe Pearle is staying with Allen + Alice since we know more of her whereabouts than we ordinarily would.  That makes since since Alice is nearing the end of her first pregnancy so it would have been nice to have her sister nearby.
