Editor's Note:
It was very neighborly of Ed Harrington to give the Cass Family a Thanksgiving Turkey.  I don't know if Allen was trying to qualify the generosity when he implies it was swapsies for the fabric.  Whatever, it was nice and Christmas is covered now.

In 1899 it seems as though the boys are still trying to make a go of their magic lantern show after a week's vacation.
