Wallet? In some Queens English speaking country the word "wallet" equals "Man Purse"- a shoulder strapped bag to carry basics for the day and a little extra space. Bible in Luke 22:36 refers in many translations to "travelers bag", a couple 1900s translations used term "wallet"- carry coin purse, travelers bag, and a sword, if you don"t have sword, sell your cloak and buy one is basic translation from old king James revised. The "scriptum/coin purse" could be carried in travelers bag along with water bottle, fire starter, days bread (daily bread) and some extra space for a couple tools or scrolls, extra food, medicine like the vinegar bottle. Today maybe paraphrase: carry cash ( money for a protection) and maybe credit cards, a Go/bugout pack, and updated Macharia(single edged chopping capable very big knife/short sword) -- .357 revolver/Judge/Bulldog for personel protection- If you don"t have a pistol, sell your fancy overcoat and buy one. Current local fashion has lots of school bags/backpacks with water bottles, snacks, cellphone chargers, pliers/wrenchs/leathermen clones, creditcard and ID folders,etc carried by men and women- the old PC Laptop cases are also used with their shoulder straps- the new laptop is 1/4 the size of old so extra space is used for the etc. Student starting school this week was told to have pack of crackers in school bag- teacher explained in case of lockdown or weather problem(we do have snowbanks attack in Wisconsin) the student would have something for meal if overnight stay. Japanese students have a full days supply in their bags- something about earthquakes happen often enough to make it simple practical need. Old eastern zone practice was lots of men carried small suitcase or workmans bag- if they found a sale on food or some needed commodity, they could buy it and carry it home. They women had shopping bags tucked in large pockets of light coats- the old working mans coat noted to have large pockets for same reason, sometimes a back pocket on coat like English "poachers pocket". Use the term-old English wallet- instead of "manpurse". Mild Teasing Alert! RN
