Excerpt from Official Proceedings, Vol. 20: November, 1920-October, 1921
I was down in Sewickley last night and a friend of mine spoke of a certain gentleman as the greatest liar he knew, and he said, He is an exceedingly pleasant liar. And the person of whom that was said is your worthy President.
I feel like making just a little informal talk. I am an ex - railroader myself. I used to live at the terminus of the road when the Allegheny Valley extended up to Kittanning and we only had one train a day each way. It started down in the morning and came up in the evening. And the whole labor organization, as I remember, was old Josh Boyd and he sawed the wood for the locomotive. Sawing wood on the railroad was something that was indulged in in those days, but most of you do not know anything about that, of course. Then I remember a big Irishman, Tommy Nugent.
He was a terror to us boys if we ever came around the railroad station. We thought he was going to put us in jail. And yet when we got near him he was as tender hearted a man as an Irishman usually is.
