Mister Ron's Basement #1542
Our Saturday Night Special story is by Seba Smith, whom we have not featured in the Basement in years.
From his 1856 collection 'Way Down East' we offer a tale of a young Yankee in business for himself in the big city, who regretfully breaks his own policy of making his customers Pay in Advance. The story has some fun twists and turns right up to the end.
It is called 'Peter Punctual.'
Time: approx twenty-five minutes
