Mister Ron's Basement #1510
Jonathan F. Kelley's 1856 posthumously published collection of his newspaper writing, 'The Humors of Falconbridge,' brought him the nationwide popularity he never received during his lifetime.
Today's Falconbridge story concerns a lawyer with awful handwriting who decides to become a phony doctor and sell pills. It's called 'Pills and Persimmons.'
Time: approx thirteen minutes
