Higher finance

Dr. Faust was indisposed recently. To cheer her up we sent her this nightgown. Having the flu is no excuse not to look pretty!

But what really cheered her up was winning $50,000 from the New York Historical Society for This Republic of Suffering. Good to know someone can get through that thing without falling into the slough of despond!

But what really cheers us up is that Drewdie has thought about using her winnings to endow the Fan Club! Invested in an annuity that throws off 5% annually, her winnings will provide us with $2,500 a year! That's more than $50 a week for Champagne!

Technically an endowment should go to fund capital improvements and repairs, but since we don't have a club house (yet, hint hint), we can use it for operating expenses.

Maybe you could find a little shack on Brattle Street and fix it up.
