“Warwick in History” – A bit of humor from BODY, BOOTS & BRITCHES containing folk ballads and speech from Orange County, New York.

A Miss H., the hard working daughter of a local farmer, had a most persistent beau who wanted to make every night a “beau night.” He was a farm boy who worked hard too, so as soon as he got Miss H. on the parlor sofa, he would put his arms around her, whisper sweet nothings for a while, and finally, go to sleep. The young lady soon wearied of this behavior, and one night when her faithful beau fell asleep she quietly disengaged herself from his embrace, put the butter churn in his arms and went to bed.
Another anecdote made in the olden days – – a husband traded his wife for a gun. When asked about his trade, he remarked, “It’s a fact, and I’m pleased to say that the shot gun kicks less than my wife did.”
