Okay, probably not. But this is what happens when I’m left to my own devices. I make weird connections. (Exploration is a poor category for this. We need a ‘completely off base tinfoil hat theory’ category.)
I just discovered Eliza Fletcher, a travel writer and autobiographer from the 1800’s. Fletcher was her married name. Her maiden name was Eliza Dawson.
Interestingly enough you can read part of her autobiography in an 1875 publication called…The Athenaeum. Now there’s a familiar name as well.
