The testimony of Mrs. Leora Watts of 60 Buckley road: the frienliest bed in town.

"YOU MIGHT THINK I'M THE CHESTERFIELD GRANNY TRYING TO SELL YOU SOME SMOKES BACK IN THE 1930S, BUT I'M JUST MS. LEORA WATTS, FRIEND OF EVERY STRANGER PASSING THROUGH THE TERMINAL STATION. BUT MOST OF ALL, MOMMA DON'T CARE IF YOU AIN'T A T.V. PREACHER, THE GOVERNOR OF SOUTH CAROLINA, THE GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK, THE 42ND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AS LONG AS YOU GOT FOUR DOLLARS AND AN APPETITE FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL. BY THE WAY, THAT LOOKS LIKE A PREACHER'S HAT YOU'RE WEARING. NOW GET-ON OV'A HERE 'N GIMME SOME SUGA'."
