When Forester made this 7^1-0- found discovery, lie already had two children. This made the future seem confused .

"Let the poor fellow live on," roared the friends, "he's such .1 swell chap. You ought to be able to think of some way of getting him through 1S12." "Not a chance," said Forester. "I simply can't have him come to Washington and attack the capital and burn tho White House—not nt this time.
