Mister Ron's Basement #1501
SUNDAY SALAD brings THREE pieces today -- first we have poetic tribute to Stanley Huntley by Judson France from his 1887 book 'Muse Whangs.'
Then we have an excerpt from a letter Huntley sent to President Arthur after he was made a Chief of the Grand Teton tribe in 1885, and finally we have a story about a Denver prospector in Brooklyn looking to get married in 'Observed a High Toned Wife' by Stanley Huntley from 1881.
Time: approx nine and a half minutes
