Editor's Note: I went back through the journals to find out who Ruth Davis was and have reminded myself that she was in fact Miss Ruth Davis of Olean who first appeared in the May 1900 as a guest of the Bunce family. Allen took Ruth out driving a few times while Alice was working in her "situation" in Jamestown back in May and June 1900. I don't know why Allen is telling Alice about it now much less admitting it was humbug but I'm guessing this "confession" has something to do with the bad time he had at Frank Warn's party the night before.
