This fall, regretfully, I will not have to ponder my status in my household for Form 1541. As mentioned, there will be no 1961 vintage from the Chateau Hanlon in Rhode Island. And that is not the only consideration. I have the additional problem of moving and storing my winemaking implements—press, vat, barrels, etc.—while I am gone; the wine itself is no trouble, for that has already been happily consumed.

After much deliberation, I have taken my decision. The equipment is to be stored in the home of a French family. I feel certain, in so doing, that proper care and sympathy will be given my possessions until another vintage. And I mean to be back home next September.
