27. One old fellow living outside town answered his door one night and was asked if he wanted to make $100. He and the others met at the shore and unloaded kegs of liquor rowed in a dory to shore by two men. Each man carried five kegs to an old model T and the truck was escorted by rum running inspectors riding motorcycles one in front and one in back.
