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,

[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]
