Jim sat bv making invidious remarks,
not complimentary at all to the meth
od. After cooking I got but little,
the rush (a It barbecue) and the de
mand (the famine prospects account
ing for it) lieing too great for my suc
cess in this line. In fact, out of fifty-five
fish cooked I got but one, our
better-half getting ten, Jim ten, and
Miss thirty-four, and all joined
in the Oliver Twist chorus for "more."
I became disgusted and had to console
myself with a little "more" of the
medicine. Next week wc are to try
the fishing again in Round Lick
creek, and after a couple of weeks of
recreation return to Milan to put on
the harness again. More anon.
