This thread for all to share their thoughts regarding Stephenson's income means.

Its as much a puzzle as any in the saga of Sudden Death as to how he made ends meet.

For example...from late June of 1888,all the way through to Decmeber of that year, he wrote one article for the PMG.

However,he had the finances to obtain not only a semi-private room in a ward, but an apartment after his late '88 release.

Then,he apparently procures another apartment in Mile End [ or room,at least ] and once again signs in to Hospital in May of ' be released in July of that same year. He wrote two more articles in early 1889 [ which dealt with the story, "She", by H.Rider Haggard ].

Thats one full year...three articles in the PMG.

Quick question....Are Bank records accessible in 2005 for accounts held in the 19th Century?
