    I would like to add Smithland, Iowa, to the list. The map indicator for Sioux City is close enough. Campbell reminisces about a bar in a kind of country inn under some trees a few miles east of Smithland. Page 300.

    It is a laughable reminiscence. One might encounter a couple of girls in the bars in that vicinity, but there are no bar girls.
