 Seacost tobacconists:
   There was a suitably academic tobaco shop in Princeton Boro a few years
ago; things being the way they are it's probably still there.  Not being
a wearer of the Orange and Black myself (and my Princetonian sibling
being more interested in driving between Elm Street and the E-Quad) my 
directions are a little off, but Princeton Boro is a nice place to walk anyway:

   There is a short street "west" of Nassau Street (that is, the opposite
side from the campus).  In the quarter-mile stretch between the Post
Office (which might have been called Prospect Square, opposite about
the level of Nassau Hall) and the Boro Police Station (opposite the
U-Store) that's about where the shop was.  And maybe the street is
two blocks west of Nassau Street.

  As I've often repeated, the must-see is Leavitt and Pierce, south of
Harvard Yard, Mass Ave, Cambridge (MBTA Red Line to Harvard).  In downtown
Boston, near the Freedom Trail and Quincy Market/Faneul Hall is David
P. Ehrlich (top of Tremont St, near MBTA Green Line Govt Center [once
Scollay Sq] but near enough to Red/Green Park Street.)

 I've just come back from a weekend on the South Shore/Near Cape/Buzzard's
Bay area :-), but I don't know of any tobacconists in that area.  I did
start to break in a new briar pipe my fiancee bought me for my birthday
(OK, a Dr. Grabow, but it's my first briar since I realized corn cobs
suited my level-of-care better) on the shores of White Island Pond,
Wareham,  and we dined in two restaurants that tolerated pipe-smoking
(awfully close to our non-smoking table) so this may be a pipe-friendly

  This new pipe, and a new bag of "Tropic Cavendish" were purchased
from a gentleman with a tracheotomy (not the best advertisement for our
vice) at the Tobacconist, Ltd, a mall chain store in Nashua, NH.  They 
used to carry a blend called "Mango Cavendish", which was similarly to 
a blend of the same name Ehrlich used to make.  The salesman said this 
was similar, but it was much less sweet and more bitter.
 My late grandfather-in-law (the reason my fiancee likes men with pipes)
used to smoke something called "Perkins #51 mixture".  I'll be looking for
it around here, but any pointers would be appreciated.  Its secondary
smoke (what's the word for the aroma that everybody gets to enjoy?)
is apparently similar to Mango Cavendish, so it might please both me
and my fiancee.

                                 a direct, if not permanent, position)

[ I believe that the Princeton tobacco shop has since closed, but it
bears checking out. Thanks! -S. ]
