There is usually a one year golden period for a newly opened restaurant.
Everything about the restaurant seems absolutely perfect; from the interior,
service, and food, right down to the utensils and the tablecloth. I‘m not quite
sure why, but a lot of restaurants like to pattern themselves after the
beginning of a rollercoaster ride (with a steady amount of quality, a peak, and
then a swift decent into food hell). I could probably compile a long list of
restaurants that have disappointed me on the second or third time around.

Josiah Henson (June 15, 1789 – May 5, 1883) was born into slavery in Charles County, Maryland. He escaped to Ontario, Canada in 1830, and founded a settlement and laborer's school for other fugitive slaves at Dawn, near Dresden in Kent County. At the time of his arrival, Ontario was known as the Province of Upper Canada (U.C.), becoming the Province of Canada in 1841, then Ontario in 1867, all within Henson's lifetime there. Henson's autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself
(1849), is widely believed to have inspired the title character of Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin
(1852). Following the success of Stowe's novel, Henson issued an expanded version of his life story in 1858 titled, Truth Stranger Than Fiction. Father Henson's Story of His Own Life
(published Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1858). Interest in his life continued, and nearly two decades later, his life story was updated and published under the title Uncle Tom’s Story of His Life: An Autobiography of the Rev. Josiah Henson (Mrs Harriet Beecher Stowe’s ‘Uncle Tom’)
from 1789 to 1876, with a preface by Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe and an introductory note by George Sturge and S. Morley Esq. MP. He died at Dresden, Ontario.
The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself,
free from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
