    No, I've had it, was looking for something else and thought I'd take a quick shot, I've been meaning to for a while.

    That seems like a hell of a selection for 1895.

    OK, but I am keeping a list. Also I have friends in Cracker Barrel management. I can get you banned from their porch.

    Many pages of cigs and cigars, again, pipe tobacco was the least of the weeds. Loads of pipes and accessories. When you're done with the book on Mountain View I'll bring this one up.
