June 4, 2018—This photograph was purchased at the same time as Secessionista (see below), although it is dated three years later. Normally I do not think that certain random persons resemble other more famous persons, but this picture is the exception that proves the rule, for the man in the picture looks to me somewhat like Albert Einstein, and the notion of him posing for this lighthearted picture on some special sunny day in Sisson Terrace, Tenafly, New Jersey, in 1913, appeals to me. Also, the phrase “Einstein in Tenafly” has a certain ring to it. Perhaps I shall write something with that title, just to see it in print.
The above picture, verso. It is fortunate to have even this meager information, as most photographs found in junk shops and fine antique emporiums have none at all.

Colonel James J. Farrell, CSA, Retired, is but one pseudonym of an author who wishes to remain anonymous, or pseudonymous, as the case may be. He is also known, or suspected, to have written under the pseudonyms Nancy Whiskey, Richard J. Farrell, Robert J. Farrell, and Joyce J. Jameson.
The Colonel is the author of the new novel Nancy Whiskey, the story of a girl who is too young to be no better than she should be, as told by a man who is old enough to know better than to get involved with her sort in the first place.
