A Doctor Woodard visited, quite keen on getting the blood of Young Loomis.  You’d think he were the vampire.  Also was overwhelmed with the boiled-potato-and-lard scent of the Celtic Cretin, visiting again. I have too much work to do, but not so much as to delay me from counting the silver. BC Advertisements

Dear Dr. Julia Hoffman, Yes, your services are very much in need.  We had a break-in last night and have lost the samples.  Yet, your help is more necessary than ever. One small oops on my part.  When we met at the ’59 AMA convention in New Orleans, I’d bent an elbow one too many […]

Young Loomis has sworn to allow me to protect Miss Evans, although I’ve yet to inform him of the full scope of the threat of Angelique.  I have given him the opportunity to set the matter right, and I sincerely hope that he makes the most of it. There seems to be an plague of […]
