Albert met Mr.Sears (of Sears and Roebuck fame)
Mr.Sears disliked living in his Allendale, N.J.
country home and envied Albert's home in the
city. Albert disliked city life and envied Mr.
Sears' home in the country. So the men struck
a deal and swapped deeds! Albert paid an
additional $500 for the land.
