Notes or transcript:  “Sheridan can’t hold a candle with Queen City when it comes to ‘snake stories.’ Stove pipes and fifteen foot measures are entirely too small. A man near Queen City saw a snake the other day that was as big around as an ordinary man’s body and was 35 feet long. The funny part of this story is that the gentleman that saw the snake is trying to make his Missouri friends believe his story by simply telling them.”
