Fashion, thinks there were from three

one hundred in the cabin, and the feet
were negroes coming to the city on a holi

When the flames began to sweep ,toward
them they plunged wildly into the wah r,

cotton were piled up eight tiers high, and
it was difficult to move about on the boat

through with it, however, and sent him

and his body given to his friends for in
