Houdini - California Dreaming

Houdini wrote a lengthy article about his escapades in the Sept. 29, 1907 edition of the Los Angeles Herald. In the last three paragraphs of the piece Harry writes that shouldn't be taken seriously. I found that to be out of character for the great escape artist. He also speaks of retiring (?) in a few years and settling down among the orange groves of California. Perhaps the fragrant scent of citrus put Harry in a thoughtful mood.

Until next time...
