March 1909. Hartford, Connecticut. "9:30 P.M. A common case of 'team work.' Smaller boy (Joseph Bishop) goes into saloon and sells his last papers. Then comes out and his brother gives him more. Joseph said, 'Drunks are me best customers. I sell more'n me brudder does. Dey buy me out so I kin go home.' He sells every afternoon and night. Extra late Saturday. At it again at 6 A.M. Sunday."
