Title That Grand and Glorious Fourth
Description I asked. "It was a tie," said Tom. After that we bought ice cream, popcorn and a dime package of firecrackers. With my extra nickel I bought a banana. At the Ephraim Tabernacle there was a meeting with patriotic songs and speeches, but nei ther Tom or I wanted to go because it was hot inside the building. The municipal ball field was about a mile away, so Tom and I walked down there. We had no money for admission, so we watched from the outside. After a few innings, we sneaked onto the field and sat on the ground near the right fielder. Evan Erickson knocked a home run but the game ended in Mt. Pleasant' s favor. I had about two miles to walk to get home. The July heat about burned me us. My new suit was hot and suffocating. I hadn' t eaten since breakfast except the sticky popcorn, ice cream and a sack of "brown bears." I got home about six o' clock and quickly got into my old and old worn shoes. That was a real "grand and glorious" feeling. On the Horn, reads for a 4lh of Julj parade in Fl. Green. Counts} Jessie Oldroyd
