A turn at John Quincy Sapp's grist mill, on Barnett's Creek

Back when the earth was still square

Frank Dickerson writes:
In my salad days this was a regular Saturday enterprise. Shell a bushel of corn and take it on hossback to John Quincy Sapp's grist mill at the top of the Jenny Hill, behind my grandfather's home on Barnett's Creek. Them thar were the days when the earth was still square!
