AWESOME!!!! I loved being led into a true life account. AMAzing story.
Thanks for the history lesson, but I would have liked it anyway.

Great story. The note at the end makes it even better.
I'm really impressed with this. Your opening sentence was great. It really grabbed my attention. It was fun to realize the little boy was Charlie Chaplin in the end. There isn't really much I can offer as far as red ink. I was beginning to think it was a little predictable, but then we learned the boy was Charlie Chaplin and I was surprised by that. Great job!
I learned something. This held my attention and was well written, too.
This was a very cool story. I love that there is real history to be learned here. Masterful writing.

Oooh, a bit of history in here. I never knew that was how he started out. This was great, I was with you all the way through this. The realistic setting and especially the atmosphere had me there with Spencer and wondering what was happening and what would happen next. Nice job! I especially like when he stopped singing to pick up the coins. ^_^

Loved this, from the first word to the last. Simply top-notch.
What a fun way to teach a history lesson! I had no idea that was about Charlie Chaplin. Well done, that was awesome.
