  • Notes 
    • Ben Andrus is rapidly coming to the front as a local poet. He has just completed fifteen or twenty verses, in long and short meter on that celebrated "chicken" affair; and the three participants are searing their hair, and vowing that they will fill his old hide with buck shot on the first opportunity.
