To This Day!

There are at least nine theories about the death of Edgar Allen Poe.  He was found outside, in a gutter in someone else's clothing, lying in the gutter in the rain.   His doctor came at his behest but Poe went on to die anyhow.  He was 40 when he succumbed to this ignoble death.

He was born January 19th in 1809 and his demise occurred on October 7 in 1849.

Oddly enough he hated the city of Boston and stayed elsewhere as much as he could.  Something about the bad hotels.  He did though really like the city's pumpkin pie.  Whether he was depicted holding a pie in his statue seems not to be known.   And I am lazy.
