I was conscious that it didn’t show either the blocky form of the man and clothes and attitude that I had wanted to draw, or the likeness of Allyn, and I said in Doug’s ear “I’ve made him look younger.” Doug said “He won’t mind that.” Allyn meanwhile was crowing: “They all knowed who it was, I didn’t have to tell them — ‘That’s old big-ass!’ they said.” He was going to pin it up on the wall, but I pleaded that either he or I take it home, so he took it home. Allyn: “Get yer gleuves.” Generations ago, it was to have been built through the hills to Cleveland in the Blue Ridge foothills, perhaps even through to North Carolina.
