Forehand Model 1901
Pocket revolver in .32 S&W* made by the Hopkins & Allen Arms Co.
Five shots and a design that holds the firing pin well away from the primer at rest. Christmas present from Tam, and a darned good one! _________________________________ * Or .32 Merwin & Hulbert. ("Sittin' in a tree, r-e-b-r-a-n-d-i-n-g," which is what they did with this and .38 S&W.)

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
