Mister Ron's Basement #1279
Frederic Thomas Somerby, who wrote pieces about Newburyport, Massachusetts and the general neighborhood (including parts of Maine and New Hampshire) for the old Boston Post in the 1850s under the pen name of 'Cymon,' published a collection called 'Hits and Dashes; or A Medley of Sketches and Scraps, Touching People and Things' back in 1852.
Today, we hear of a fiercely funny clash of armies in 'The Battle of Quamphegan.'
Time: approx seven minutes
