Alfred grows weary of the routine of training. He wants to get in the ring and spar. He is beginning to  wonder what the point of it all is. In late July, Aunt Pearl has to go out of town; she leaves the girls in  Queens with Dorothy and Wilson, and Alfred has the apartment to himself.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
