Notes or transcript:  “Aaron Linville is quite a rustler and can do about as much work as any other white man in this part of the country, but he had his working capacity a little over estimated the other day when he undertook the job of off-bearing the bundles of hay from G. W. Merrit’s hay bailer. The bails weighed from 100 to 125 pounds and were being turned out at the rate of one to the minute.”
