I was discharged from the army on March 7, 1969 after three years of service, including a year in Vietnam. My discharge was from Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, home of the U.S. army signal center and school, where I had been a teacher after return from Vietnam.


We had received an overnight snowstorm during the night, which slightly delayed the processing of my discharge. Nonetheless, here is Pennsylvania Railroad train no. 1124 on the New York and Long Branch Railroad that I boarded at Little Silver (scheduled departure at 1:56 pm) that day to begin my trip home. One of my best friends, Jack Barnhill, also boarded the train here for his return to Brooklyn, New York. He had never before ridden on a train.


The railroad, between New York and Long Branch, New Jersey carried commuter trains of both the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Central of New Jersey. I had traveled on these trains many times on weekend trips while stationed at Fort Monmouth.

While the lads were scampering away (whichthey did as fast as their legs could carry them),the frog escaped also. When Peter had led the horses around into thestreet, there was the landlord of the little innstanding smiling in the doorway. Good morning, lad, said the landlord. Good morning, sir, said Peter. And now would Peter come over the way amoment ? The landlord had a word or two thelad might be glad to hear. See ? The landlord had heard how Peter gotno supper the night before, and how he was liketo get no breakfast; here was a bit of bread andcheese he might slip into his pocket to eat by theway. And, since the landlord liked the looks ofsuch a lad as Peter, here was something more,which no doubt would come in handy some day.With that he dropped into Peters hand a tinysilver casket.

And what can be in that littlesilver casket the lad has just slipped into hispocket? That was what the older son was won-dering. But of this he said nothing. All that day they traveled under the goodblue sky and at evening came into another town. Peter knew better what to do this time, forhad nt he been taught a good lesson yesterday?There would be no trying to save pennies now. This time he chose the fine inn: and gay timesthey certainly were having inside, for everyguest was a rich lord or noble, journeying on tothe Kings town, where each hoped to be the oneto win the fair Princess. Well, no sooner had Peter begun his bargain-ing with the landlord than up the street cameclattering the two sons. So Peter was for putting them in this fine inn,was he?
