food Its hair is woven into garteia
and girdles by Indian women Gov
Bob Taylor in his story The Quilt
ing and the old Virginia Reel tells
better than I can how the possum is
cooked and enjoyed
One evening old Uncle Ephraim
came home from his labors and took
his possum dog into the woods and
soon caught a fine large fat possum
He brought him homo and dre sed
him and then he slipped into his
masters garden and stole some line
large fat sweet potatoes master
nigger masters taters and lie
washed the potatoes and split them
and piled them in the oven around
the possum Ho set the oven on
the coals and put the lid on and cov
ered it with red hot coals and then
sat down in the corner and nodded
and breathed the sweet aroma of
the baking possum till it was done
Then he set it out into the middle of
the floor and took the lid off and sat
down bv the smoking possum and
