Braxton and Hollis had jobs at a California cotton mill. One morning the foreman came along and found Braxton reading a letter to his coworker. Hey, cried the foreman, what kind a horseplay you two guys up to? Hollis got a letter from his girlfriend, explained Braxton, but he cant read; so Ahm reading the letter for him. How come you got the cotton in your ears? Hollis don’t want me to hear what his girlfriend writ to him!
