But I feel like sixteen kinda young now they're a lot of them were that age, and they would usually die giving giving birth to child. Oh, man. Yeah. That's why a lot of men back in those days got married. Several times to. And the age difference is not the only thing. It's the cousin thing. Yeah. Really? But in those days to it was not uncommon to court your cousin that that part. Definitely I've heard before. So that's the negative. I have to say about po-. And that's the one part that made me feel differently about him at low bet. Like, if I could just eliminate this part of the history everything would have been like man, my heart would have went out to this guy. Po was not happy with the money that he was making Richmond, and he moved to New York City and then to Philadelphia year later, he continued writing for number of different magazines. Oh was actually making a living of sorts as a writer. This was something that was unheard of in his day, especially in the US and by living. I mean, he was barely getting by. But he was able to afford a roof. Over his head and food. He had to get basic cable though. Oh, yeah. Right. Huma thrones in wasn't able to watch that and still no cell phone. Yeah. In January eighteen forty five hose publication of the raven made him a household name.

So he's finally getting some success. He was. Yeah. The Broadway journal did not do that. Well, though, but he was making some money from his writings Virginia started getting ill. Oh, no. In post started a relationship with a married woman in eighteen forty six. Well, there is some speculation though that his relationship with Virginia was not was not a typical marriage. I see it was more just a like out of convenience or something namely together kinda thing. Yeah. But I'm not sure about that. Because I've heard conflicting things so they moved into a tiny cottage in the country in Virginia went with him. But passed away of Burke uses the next year. She was twenty four years old. They were married eleven years then. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, supposedly, they were happy, even if not typical marriage her death devastated. Po and left him unable to write for months and for a writer. That's barely getting by not being able to write for a couple months. Could do you in right that -solutely PO travel the country giving lectures? He returned to Richmond in eighteen forty nine in reconnected with his first fiancee, what was your name, again, a Maurier L Mira Mira racer? Now, it was Shelton. So she got a new last name because she got married, but she was widowed. And they became engaged in attended to marry enrichment after Paul return from a trip to Philadelphia New York to do more lectures. However, Paul never returned. Oh had stopped in Baltimore.

But the, but the average life expectancy of a man in those days was thirty seven. Yeah. Well, but I would also say though, it depends. What class you were? And even though he was poor. I still think he was a little bit of a gentleman a little higher class. So at acted like he was released. Yeah. So yeah. But the exact cause of post death remains a mystery. Although there there's a lot of theories about how how he died some of them range from rabies to syphilis tearing drinking is one of them.
