BWTM:

POETICAL 146 YEARS PAST:

            The following verse can be found inscribed on the wall of our lockup:

            Beneath the Town House we are thrown,

            They have barred us in with iron and stone,

            And here we lay with fright and fear,

            Because we broke Jack Tyler’s chandelier.

                                                                                                            The Framingham Gazette

                                                                                                            August 13, 1873

Richard, the Police log gets my day going every week. I think without Paul it would be very dull report.
