Nutmeg and cocaine sounds good but the case seems to be closed on these
sensationalist bozos. So the Arden cottage is not the Arden homestead,
that's news. How much more is in those archives?

PS /nutted/ weed. Bind me in a nutshell, Hardy, I'm the king of infinite
space. ROTFLOL

[Editors' Note: Agreeing with Peter Holland that there is not much more
fruitful that can be about this subject, I have got to offer a
correction. The alleged cocaine in the pipe or pipes must have been coco
leaves. I do not believe that cocaine was processed until the turn of
the 20th century when it came to the attention of Freud. -HMC]
