In the fourth part of this new story, newcomer Eli Smith has moved into the Second Street Boarding House. He is intrigued by what's in the cellar under the caretaker's cottage, which he hopes to move into soon. But he has to put his curiosity aside. The most important thing now is to find work and get enough money to start his newspaper business.
Eli thinks he has things all figured out. But he is in for a surprise.
A new blog on a topic related to my novels or other material will be up on Saturday. The next segment of The Newcomer will post on Wednesday.
Until then - be kind to one another.
