Sometimes, in order to negotiate our way through this material, it will be necessary to take what seem like very small steps. Such is the case with Chapter 41- Notes from the Rabbit Hole: Forks In The Road.
This installment presents a collection of semi-random musings and a bit of history, before finally cobbling together what we have actually been able to determine about Townsend and Josephine’s separate paths immediately after their divorce in 1937.
I didn’t start out to write this chapter as another "Notes from the
Rabbit Hole, but once I saw what shape it was taking, that approached
seemed to make more sense. Then I picked up my copy of "Alice’s
Adventures In Wonderland" and it fell open to a section where Alice
meets the Cheshire Cat. Finding the quotation that begins the chapter
pretty well sealed the deal for me.
In the course of developing this chapter, I discovered a previously overlooked detail about where Brown’s work may have gone in late 1938, which lead I am now pursuing. Thus we see that even small steps such as this chapter represents are valuable, particularly when they help identify where other work needs to be done.
