Jim Leloudis, interviewer:
Did they ever- what kind of pranks would they pull on one another? You said they would pull pranks on one another.
Alice P. Evitt:
Well, they'd do that a lot of times. Sometimes they'd get under the spinning frame and reach under there and get ahold of somebody's dress and jerk 'em, and make them think the machinery had 'em. They'd do that, try to scare 'em. But they was good, they didn't mean no harm, you know. Just having fun. And sometimes, there at Concord - back then, they'd play Black Jack, you know, take little rocks and we'd carry them there and they had like a little hall out in there were the bobbins was, and we'd get our spinnin', and get all our ends up and all our stuff done on the frame, we'd go out there and play. We'd carry little rocks in there and we'd sit out there and play that.
Jim Leloudis, interviewer:
Was that when you were young, or was that the adults too?
Alice P. Evitt:
Yeah, that's before I was married. Yeah, we'd sit in that hall. And then we'd have to jump up and run and catch up with our work and go back and play a little more.
