Mister Ron's Basement #1281

Frederic Thomas Somerby, who reported on the folks of Newburyport, Massachusetts and the general area (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.

When someone attempts to tell you how wonderful something is, take it with a grain of salt, as we shall see in 'Interesting Associations.'

Time: approx four minutes
