I still like Trey Lance a little bit better for the Patriots because I just I think he fits in so perfectly for what they are doing right now and I think it's seamless I think you have to take a little bit of a detour if you go with fields, which is always scary, but they're really close and in terms of pure talent, I actually think Fields is better if they end up with him. They they did find they they as long as they don't draft Margot Wilson Orion book they'd gotten a who dumped me. It's throwing off. It's up to seems to Hunter Henry and John Smith and no time if they draft Justin Fields, I'm not they'll have to become a little bit more vertical base or Atlanta. They'll have to play into the facts schematically that he might hold the ball a little bit longer than what they're used to write. But in terms of the things that he can do, he actually unlocks almost in a way more stuff for them to do because he's so physically talented that they'll be able to figure that out for you.

Where is he needed to have a very efficient factory to get that efficiency you needed to produce sign many vehicles a diet and make sure that constantine coming out to the factory and the best way to do that is he needed to get them as sole as quickly as possible.

Stocking with rock stuffed down in the toe and the rock has a note of warning wrapped around it written by whistling dick and then hurled through the window from out in the field the would be. Thieves are arrested and whistling. Dick is thanked with a hot christmas eve.

"The actual story one of his most well-known stories. Today is ransom of red chief which among other things uses the n. word as part of the description for a rock. The red chief referenced in the title is a little boy whose behavior is like a truly extreme version of dennis. The menace whose manner quote playing indian is also heavily stereotyped. We definitely red ransom of red chief in school. And when i reread it working on this episode i was like whoa. I did not remember the n. Word being in this school which might have been expurgated from what we read it anyway. Oh henry's depiction of women could also be troubling at best for example the story a harlem tragedy which was written to be comedic. Romance is is a physically abusive marriage with one of the characters forlornly wondering why her husband does not love her enough to beat her and this is also a case where the setting of this story has different connotations now than it would have back when he wrote it when henry died in one thousand nine ten only about ten percent of harlem's population was black but within a decade that we're shifting dramatically with the harlem renaissance which was also known as the new negro movement stretching through the nineteen twenties and thirties by the nineteen forties. Oh henry short stories. Were really starting to fall out of favour. This wasn't so much about changing attitudes related to the issues. We just discussed though it was really more about. Changing literary conventions and tastes critics started describing his writing as formulaic and overly discursive and embellished. Writing him off as only inconsequential works of light. Humor meant for popular appeal Henry's legacy has continued. Though in nineteen fifty two five of his short stories were filmed and released as a film called. O henry's full house. The stories were the cop and the anthem. The clarion call the last leaf. The ransom of red chief and the gift of the cisco kid who's a character created by. Oh henry also made his way into a number of television shows and movies. There are also schools named after him and several the places where he lived as well as the o. Henry hotel in greensboro north carolina. And henry's and asheville which is north carolina's oldest. Gay bar the pen. O henry prize is an annual award for the best english language. Short stories published in the us or canada. The oh henry candy bar. If you're wondering is apparently not related to the writer henry at all and has similarly incredibly mysterious name origins about who decided to name it that and why there have also been various attempts to have. Oh henry posthumously pardoned. None of those have been granted. So i picked this topic for december like i said up at the top of the show because of o. Henry's christmas stories and we have not really talked about them. So heads up. We're about to spoil the endings of some hundred plus year old short stories spoiler alert. I think the the window is closed at that point. You don't have to worry. But as we mentioned earlier whistling. Dixie christmas stocking was the first story published under the name. Oh henry an it. Professional tramp and expert whistler whistling. Dick is trying to make his way through a town. That arrests vagrants on site and after a stern warning from police officer who's german accent rendered as text is very hard to read. Dick picks up a stocking that falls from a parcel in a passing wagon. And the story. Oh henry does the same thing that i talked about. Not enjoying bram stoker. Doing great i think in our dracula are bram stoker behind the scenes so then dick happens upon some other tenor in people that he knows they are planning to rob a house..

"How anytime someone got one in a package from home it would be torn into its component story so that several people could read at once porter skill was also recognized by other writers j.

I should have considered a trip to the united states well worthwhile to make his acquaintance as for why his works. Were so popular. Oh henry played with language writing short stories that packed in a lot of irony dark humor wit and word play most of the time. All of this came together in some kind of ending brought about by coincidence or crossed wires or a missed connection. This kind of ending became synonymous with henry often. The main characters were working people. Poor people vagabonds people down on their luck. People that readers especially white. Readers often identified with his entry in the dictionary of american biography. Dating back to the thirties describes it this way quote. His stories do not indicate a preference for great virtues or high intelligence or distinguished persons. They do not show him preferring whit to dullness beauty to plane. Nece industry to idleness intensity to casualness. Anybody can be the hero of a no henry episode provided the right events happen to him. Nobody reading the stories ever felt shut out from the world in which they happen though. The plots may be fantastic. They are no more so than the little miracles which most men and women hope or fear will occur to them. The characters are familiar and simple. They live love work. Play and die with nothing demanded of them except to be decent and kind the rest is accident. So it's not entirely accurate to say that nobody has ever shut out from. Oh henry stories. Though some of those stories hold up today and those that don't probably would not have raised eyebrows among most white readers when they were written but many oh henry stories uncritically incorporate racist characters language or stereotypes in some of it's just casually thrown in a way that doesn't have any bearing on.

Cabbages and kings is set in a fictitious country called the republic of an area but it is very clearly based on his time in honduras before long. Though new york city became a major focus of henry's writing in one thousand nine five one thousand nine hundred six eight more than a hundred and ten new stories about ninety percent of them were set in new york. That is more than two stories a week and at some points. Oh henry's output went even beyond that in nineteen three. He signed a contract with the new york. World's to write a story every week for one hundred dollars each. This contract was not exclusive though and he wrote for other publications including harper's aims lease and mcclure's at some points. He was writing a short story every single day. And these were not necessarily all day projects the gift of the maj. I which is probably his most famous work today. Reportedly went from idea to finish work in about two hours because he forgot that he hit agreed to write a christmas story for the new york. Sunday world. yeah..

"He and other men in similar situations formed what they called the recluse club. I should've just ask you about the arsenic antidote. Because i forgot that you've just been working on an entire podcast about poisoners which is like eighty five percent arsenic poisoning so gradually while he was incarcerated. Puerto got on. Wha- better emotional footing when he started to write more. He always used a pen name and then he passed his stories through a series of intermediaries before they were sent into publishers to try to conceal his identity and his connection to the prison this was when he published under the name. Oh henry for the first time that was whistling. dixie christmas stocking which appeared under that byline in mcclure's in eighteen. Ninety nine at first porter was using several pen names. And it's not clear why he eventually stuck with henry or even where that name came from biographers. Cite all kinds of possibilities. Maybe it came from the united states dispensary which listed a french. Pharmacist named essien henry already or maybe. The family had a cat named henry and they would call it by saying. Oh henry yeah you can find many biographers authoritatively and confidently saying completely different contradictory stories. I feel like i want to be like. I hope you're wearing comfortable shoes. Because that seems like a long walk porter was released from prison with time off for good behavior on july twenty fourth. Nineteen o one. He was too ashamed to go back to texas so he went to pittsburgh. That's where his mother-in-law had moved with his daughter. He stayed with them for a while and he got a job at a newspaper but eventually he moved into a boarding house although he said this was because he had to keep erratic hours for his job and he didn't wanna disturb everybody also just seems like he wanted some space p impresses me as a man. That just like just didn't really want to be tied down. Ever i think family life probably did not agree with his disposition in the spring of nineteen o two porter move to new york city and when he got there he started going by henry all the time.

"The jury found porter guilty on all three counts. There is still some debate about all of this. Though as we said earlier the banks bookkeeping was frankly a mess. One of the charges was related to a transaction that had happened on november twelfth. Eight thousand nine hundred five which was months after porter left the bank and moved to houston documentation of the trial. Itself is also sketchy but porter reportedly seemed detached from the whole thing and barely even participated in his own defense. And this place. In time it was not common to just fully transcribed the entire trial. So there's no transcript of it but that's how he's been described so interpretations of all this run along kind of a big spectrum at one end porter embezzled from the bank possibly to try to get money to fund the rolling stone and then his trial was handled fairly then at the other end either. He took the blame for other bank employees actions or he was doing the same things that they were doing was the only one who got charged with a crime because of it one of his friends john maxi later said he thought that porter did take the money but intended to pay it back just like everybody else at the bank who kept helping themselves to unofficial loans. Just can't even imagine if you work at a bank today. You definitely can not just take some money over the out of till right. Believe a little note there. I just need this overnight. I swear. I wanna bring it back tomorrow. outside of court porter maintained his innocence in a letter to his mother. He wrote quote. I am absolutely innocent of wrongdoing in that bank matter. I care not so much for the opinion of the general public. But i would have a few of my friends still believe. There is good in me in a letter to j l. watson business manager at the houston post. He said quote. I want to state to you. That the charges against me are not only unfounded. But are i think. The work of spite as well porter was sentenced to five years in prison and he started his incarceration at ohio state penitentiary on april twenty fifth eighteen ninety eight. He was profoundly ashamed about this. He desperately wanted to sealed his daughter margaret. Who at the time was eight years old from the truth about what had happened. He got his mother-in-law to agree to send margaret to live on a relative's farm in tennessee to like keep or out of the public eye and away from gossip. He was nearly despondent when his sentence started and he used his letters to margaret as a way to try to keep himself going also incarcerated with him was done done done. Alginate had been sentenced to life in prison in conjunction with the train robbery that we talked about earlier later on he would be pardoned by president theodore roosevelt whether jennings account of their earlier time together is true. It does seem that they were friends while incarcerated the oh henry story holding up. A train starts with a note. That it's the words of an outlaw. In the southwest. Which was probably al jennings both porter and jennings described conditions at the prison as deeply inhumane and letters to his in laws puerto wrote about outbreaks of typhus measles and tuberculosis as well as frequent suicides. Among the incarcerated men he also described overcrowding frequent beatings and rancid and rotten food. At the same time porter was treated relatively leniently becoming the overnight pharmacist at the prisons hospital he was also credited with saving the warden's life after he was given an accidental overdose of fowler solution which was an arsenic compound that was used as a general. Tonic porter reportedly mixed something in the pharmacy. That acted as an antidote. If i had to guess i would say it was. Charcoal eventually porter was given a clerical position working for the prison steward which allowed him to leave the prison unaccompanied and to be housed outside of it..
