President's Message

Hi Folks,

There will be no presidents message and no tobacco raffle this month (unless Tom surprizes us with something which is entirely possible).

The October meeting will be held at Peretti's starting sometime between 5 and 6 PM.  We hope to see you there.

We will also hold off on Chapter 3 of the Case of the Dublicitous Palette until next month.

Take care all and Happy Fall!!

The Case of the Duplicitous Pallete

by Ernie Whitenack


“I’m fine, Allan. I’m concerned that I’m overstepping my authority with this copied art thing. Matt told me to take one day and then send a Cablegram to Sullivan. My gut tells me this is a massive international operation we’re looking at. Actually, it’s not a swindle. By all reports, the copies are nearly perfect. They are, however, copies of stolen art. I think the one the New York FBI is looking into is just the beginning of a worldwide effort to sell many copies of various ripped-off artworks. I will eventually have to tell Matt what I’m doing. Either I’m correct, or I’m fired.”

“You’ve never been wrong since I’ve known you,” Allan said. “If you don’t trust your judgment on this one, drop it now and send the cable. If Frank Gray feeds you anything to substantiate your intuition, you can always pick it up again. If I were you, I’d keep it to myself for a while longer. At least until Frank contacts you.”

September 2022's Tobacco Raffle

This month we have tins from two of the oldest tobacco houses - James Fox and Robert Lewis.
James J. Fox Provost Mixture
James J. Fox Provost Mixture is a blend that has around for over a century, and is a very traditional type of English Cavendish blend. Made of select Virginias and toasted Cavendish, it has more flavor and strength than the contents would indicate. Some people notice a faint hint of Latakia, though that's not described in the contents, and may be the result of the fire-curing of the Cavendish.
Robert Lewis' Orcilla Mixture
Robert Lewis' Orcilla Mixture is a classic Oriental pipe tobacco mixture, featuring Turkish leaf, Latakia, Virginias, and a touch of Perique in a ribbon-cut blend. A favorite among pipe smokers for over a century, Orcilla Mixture is exceptionally smooth and balanced — perfect as the first smoke of the day.

In case you miss any information or just want to give us feedback, please feel free to contact us.
