Loafers Club and Creed Brooks Wit from 1894

(03/23/2001)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/24/1894.

Samuel G. Rogers says he has been elected as president of the Loafers Club at Brooksville and several applications were received. All qualified were elected, two being rejected, John Gainer and Creed Brooks. The former on account of being in very delicate health, brought about by a "Sugar Camp" love affair and the latter being too old.

Creed says he did not know that 12vs (twelves) would go into 10ns (tens) until John Gainer pulled on a pair of No. 10n shoes.
