Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Joe Logston was one of that class of half-horse, half alligator Kentuckians, that could -- to use his own words -- 'out-run, out-hop, out-jump, throw down, drag out and whip any man in the country,' Joe was a powerful fellow, of six foot three in his stockings, and proportionably stout and muscular, with a handsome good-natured face and a fist like a sledge-hammer. Fear was a word he knew not the meaning of, and to fight was his pastime, particularly if his scalp was the prize he fought for." Includes additional text.
