Editor's Note: In 1899 it seems the boys are done drumming up business for a while and are heading over to Fred's grandfather's house for a breather.  From what I can find, I believe Fred Whetmore was from the Warren, Pa area and about 17 years older than Allen--so not really a boy.  Of course, I could be way off but the pieces point this direction.
