There are several other middling tears throughout, mostly to the bottom areas where the text is. The postmortem photograph that was taken of Julia Buccola Petta after her grave was opened -- six years after her death.

Funny, crusty, unforgettable characters fill the stories, like George Petty, who delivered the mail in mud season when all one 'could see stickin' outta the mud was George's head!
