The peple what was runnin the bizness end of the game didnt know I was coming and they didnt save me no seat and as a consy quince I paid em 1$ and they let me stand up close enuf so I cood find out how the game come out es soon as it were over and shure enuf purty soon after the peple begin to leave I found out the score was the hurri can 0 and the tigers ditto just like some people what we know. While I didnt get to see much' of the game. Pedro on acet of havin to stand be hind so many peple I dont think the (ines in the granstan had any large thing on me as from all reports they didnt see much of one ether. I ast some folks what was hollerin for the tigers how they like it and they said not much & I ast some of the ones what was hollerin for the hurrican hew they like it and they said not much and so as one of them bat tIes 4f the century I guess it was about as usual. The fellows what was puttin ip the old *ack for the game must a liked it tho as there was frly nigh onto six (six) thousand boobs like me and you there and the five (five) thousand that got to set down had to pay 2$ apece an] I I guess if I had ast the biz nirg how he liked it he wood not a said not much. You know I always like a little ex citement for my money Pedro so when I coodnt see the game I just made a noise like Sh--< 1 H ,m ns antd sluthed around some. I wanted to find out why they called the Clem son .players the tigers and it was easy its pie after I done a little high class sluthiii. Its because they look like Elyfants and act like latis but I never did find out why they called the Furman players the hurricans you know Pedro I seen a football game olet before and I coodi a told, you all about this one in de tail if I ceod just a seen it all. The kind I like is where they is a reglar Olympic affair what includes wraslin, boxin, .jumlpin) , rullill aid so on etc &c and 'where the umn pire blows his whissel ever few minits and says time --it wile they :tote the casulty off the field and one band plays a fun eral march while the other one plays turkey in the straw.

They had sevral good bands which I dont know how the peple wood a got along with out them and the Clemson school boys was on one side and the Furman boys on the ether side and down in front of the boys on each side was three or four boys all dolled up in wnite close and. they called em cheer leaders and ever time these white close babies had attack of the saint vitus dance the boys on their side would turn loose their voices which was tuned up high and yell like commanshe in dians but only the most educated stu dents can belong to the reglar rooters as all they yells is in French, yiddish & latin. If onle side had a made a tuehdown Pedro it wood a been six (six) points for them and then if they had a kicked the ball in the place they wanted to it wood a been one (one) more point but they didnt nether side do this an( thats the reason it was a tie. I dont know why they have a tuchdown count six (six) po;ints but if I was the tigers and the hurrican I woodnt. play with Auburn and Ga teck less they had a umpire what just counted em one (one) point each. When I left that other game I saw I coodnt help but repeat that nobul poem by old Bill Shakspere what he wrote just after he seen a game when the mighty Stratford ey elone met the roaring Lonlon lions aid he warbled "Lives of football players remind us We can make things come to pass And departing leave behind us Half our faces in the grass." But all I cood think of as I lefi this game was that wile I had tq stan1d in that crowd on one foot sev ral other good size peple was stanldil oni it too and gee whiz howI my cori did hurt.
