Pete has remembered who he is at last. This is bad. Pete was a reasonable, calm, and pleasant fellow. Jack Ellison, who he was before, is a violent, vengeful, and bitter man. I don't know what happened on that houseboat Clarice and Pete/Jack rented, but I fear for both of them now.
In other news, I found that the rumors of my old professor's death to be, perhaps, exaggerated. He disappeared mysteriously, according to the local papers I found in archives. He must have known about The Black King, somehow.
