[April 1884 Travel]

During this month, five lawyers went on a travel junket. Two of them were Judge Potter and J. Stanford Potter. Their trip took them for a stay in Florida and on to
California. Their reporting in long articles gave many travel notes. One, a novelty in these days, was an alligator hunt. They managed to kill an 11-foot prey. The skin was
brought home and shoes were made for these “Roaming Lawyers,” as they termed themselves. Besides the big one that provided the shoes, the party shot ten other alligators.
