Quite a Merry Crowd (1892)

Last Friday night an old fashion straw ride was gotton up, and participated in by Misses Clara Fentress Maymee and Lillie Dofflemyre, and Mrs. Tennon, Messrs Chas. Biggs, A. P. Homar, T. A. Murray, Nix Lidstone, and Elsworth McKenna.  They visited the bridges and rode through town.  Quite a merry crowd, but hard up for fun.

The Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Humanities, has digital newspapers of small towns, some ten or so from Texas.  San Saba, Texas, is the birthplace of many of my ancestors and is part of the digital archive of the Library of Congress.
