Re: Episode 90 - THE WOOING OF ABIGAIL JONES

Actually, the story is more aligned with the story of John Alden wooing Priscilla for Miles Standish. I'd forgotten about that poem! You're so right, Adamant. Abigail literally quotes it when she says, "Why don't you speak for yourself?" :grin I just looked over the poem and found this gem: You, wh...

Re: Episode 90 - THE WOOING OF ABIGAIL JONES

Re: Episode 167 - TRIANGLE

Adam's back injury was always suspicious to me. Was it some kind of partial paralysis? Why did he seem to be in no pain whatsoever? How much could a doctor in the 1860s actually diagnose without x-rays? "Muscle and nerve damage" seems veeery vague to me and like some writer didn't want to take the t...
