to dip Into these ntd sell them at
Leary's In order to appease his land
lady. At the end of the season he left
Philadelphia, but minus his trunk, which
remained as security for tho rest of his
board. When he returned at the Wal

a salary of ?15 a week, he went back
to the Wood street place to redtrcm the
trunk, but found his former landlady
