Mister Ron's Basement #663

Since the days of Ben Franklin, one of the great sources of American humor was the Almanac. James M. Bailey, known for his fun stories found in the Danbury News (in Connecticut) back in the 1870s, also published a genuine almanac, featuring his witty observations.

This week, we will be spotlighting some of those from 'The Danbury News Man's Almanac' published in 1874. Today, we buy a suit, and bring it back.

And bring it back.

And bring it back.

All in the story 'Getting Clothes.'

Time: approx four and a half minutes
