If making plans a shot farther down Elm road, he definitely could have selected the right-hand window: it used to be the building’s width nearer and, by way of the curve in Elm road, gave him much less deflection to the objective. It appeared that even Oswald, fired up on a wave of egomania and feel of future as he used to be, doubted his skill to make a deflection shot at with reference to 300 ft, which was once what his number of the left-hand window finally devoted him to doing.
