One of the things I did buy on our trip today.

This came from a book store, not an antique store.

It was, If I recall correctly, $6. Maybe $7.

It was published in 1913.

Adjusting for inflation, 10 cents is roughly $3, so I overpaid a little bit.

I knew nothing about it when I bought it save from what's on the cover "A periodical of protest"

Since then, I've learned some stuff.

It's beautiful. Some of the best views of the Appalachian mountains I've ever seen. Magnificent gardens. An astounding collection of art and prints and furniture.

The tour was more than an hour long and barely covered even 1/4th of the house, much less the rest of the grounds.

It was also just propaganda. The estate is still privately held. They charge $100/head for entry. There were at least 500 people in the main grounds, but likely many many more.
