Harry Partch and his first cigar...

Keith sent me this quote from Harry Partch: A Biography by Bob Gilmore

"[Harry Partch] also found gainful employment delivering prescriptions all over town on his bicycle, 'including the wide-open red-light district,' probably for the maladies of the prostitutes. He recalled one woman there offering him his first cigar, which he smoked all the way through without getting sick."
