It was the lady with the grandmotherly look who worked at the pie factory at 1st and french:

When I walked the mile to school on cold mornings, my path
took me right past the pie factory on First Street and French. It was
hot inside by the stoves, so a giant fan would blow the aroma of
fried pineapple pies right out there on the sidewalk in front of me. I
remember the beautiful, old, gray-haired lady who did the cooking.
The price of a pineapple pie was a nickel, or two for a nickel if they
were broken. Well, when I'd open the back door to that place during
the lunch break and walk in, that sweet old lady would see me coming.
She knew I didn't have any money so she'd break two pies. I still
remember that grandmotherly look on her face and I've thought
about her in some of my best dreams. If I could find where she's
buried I'd slip out there some dark night and push a nickel under
her grave marker and just leave it there. Somehow I sense she knows
that and is smiling down on me.

You are on a trail of no return there John. So what do you think the "L" on the girls shirt in the school pics really mean? Do you remember your numerals?

The first thing I did after buying TTOTC was Xerox it and save it as a PDF. I then ran OCR on the pdf to get an ascii file. I then went in and hand-corrected the errors that the OCR produced. Mostly it was pretty good but OCR had difficulties with the "F"'s and all the stuff from the pages with images and chapter headings etc. Those I fixed over time. There aren't so many that it wasn't manageable to do by hand but I guess it took a few hours. The main thing was writing down the figure captions and then checking to see that they were correct. I'm sure there are still some errors but they should be so onerous that they screw up the statistics. Nearly all the "Fenn"s came out as "Penn" which was easy to correct. There's no guarantee that is perfect. In fact can guarantee there is at least one imperfection; at some point I converted the hyphens to spaces and then decided that was a bad idea and fixed it. For no particular reason I left "six bucks fifty" instead of correcting it back to "six-bucks-fifty". There are probably a few other things like that that I never caught or didn't care about. My opinion is that unless you find something hidden in an image like "The chest starts here: 42°50'27.00"N 110°30'7.00"W and ends here: 42°49'20.38"N 110°31'1.94"W or whatever (ha ha) that anything you use had better be statistical in nature. When you do that there are huge clues that are too numerous to be ignored.

Well, I am not sure what your looking at. Think about the end of the Poem, Like brave and in the wood. One of the answers is on most all of the pages in The Thrill of The Chase book.

The picture is of the Lanier School, as per the caption. However, your other points are of interest.
