Had all that cork on our face... made us look even blacker... shit, painted our mouths white... made 'em look big... I had to have a shot of liquor before the show. If I didn't it seemed like I couldn't be funny in front of all them people. When I had one it seemed like them people was one and I would throw up the banjo in the air and really put on a show. - Gus Cannon, on performing with Dr. Stokey's Medicine Show in Clarksdale, Mississippi

Hi all,
I don't believe this has been shared here before. I'd heard of this work and vaguely remember looking for an inexpensive copy before but lo and behold there's a free pdf version on the Internet Archive:

Wikipedia has this to say of Dorothy Scarborough:
"Emily Dorothy Scarborough (January 27, 1878 ? November 7, 1935) was an American writer who wrote about Texas, folk culture, cotton farming, ghost stories and women's life in the Southwest."
