L'affaire Jenkins

August 12, 1990

Jenkins? I remember the dear boy well. It was 1933; he was stalking lion in the African veldt with his Daisy air rifle. But for an unlucky shot, he might be there still.

I lost track of him until the summer of 1934. By that time he was selling Popsicles in Ujiji. Sometime in 1935 he married a gorilla and settled down to a humdrum existence in suburbia.

Or was it some other Daniel A. Jenkins?
