Thanks to Lynn Lockhart at and Eric Frazier at the Library of Congress, for enabling my reading of The Vain and Prodigal Life and Tragical Penitent Death of Thomas Hellier.

And also, I owe a debt for repeated kicks in my creative posterior to “write this thing” by my brother in moral dissonance, Mescaline Franklin.
