Notes or transcript:  “Mr. John Grigsby was painfully injured on his farm west of town Wednesday afternoon. He and Mr. George Hobbs were driving through a field, and in crossing a ditch, one of the horses crowded its mate off the bridge and the wagon followed. Mr. Hobbs jumped and escaped injury, but Mr. Grigsby was less fortunate. He was thrown forward by the shock and fell on the doubletree and tongue of the wagon sustaining painful injuries about the back. The family ministered to his hurts all night Wednesday, and the following morning Dr. Hutt was summoned.”
