Editor's Note:
Edith Hill may have gone out once with Allen but she goes on to marry George Baker in 1899.  She lived until 1945 and is buried in Myrtle Cemetery.  George died two years later.

In 1901 it's the first time I think we've seen them eat something that Allen caught hunting.  I'm impressed.

And I can't resist: "Jimmy cut corn and I don't care...Jimmy cut corn and I don't care...
I'm sure you thought of the comparison too when you read 1902.
