A jumping hoes cost him a fine Because It was disorder. So Freddy got a valentine- It came from the recorder Lamb's Deal in Old Clothes. George Lamb undertook to assist a ne gro In making a sale of second hand clothes Two detectives discovered that the clothes had been stolen and before the deal was consummated Lamb was in a cell Another case of the wolf and the iamb remarked the re order when George presented himself for valentine honors Lamb petitioned the court to be allowed to make a statement and when the petition was granted he said Judge I works for a second hand clothing store on Decatur street sorter buys old clothes on commissions and when I saw the darky trfing to sell the clothes 1 showed him where to go I had taken four drinks and was 'bat jo might call.
