Editor's Note: I have to believe the book Ellen King gave Allen was about the Incas because I found a book so titled first published in 1896. A likely location of the World's Fair in the souvenir guide would have been Atlanta, GA in 1895. I can't find Ellen King though. Her name seems familiar but I don't think it has really come up before that I can remember and here she is showering Allen with gifts--thoughtful gifts. I don't find her locally in the census. Hmm.
