[Original caption] Madras, Cocoanut Oil Mills. Here is an oil-press at work, with one native overseer watching the tank and another, armed with a whip for the patient oxen who, going round and round with the heavy beam to which they are yoked, are doing both lion's and jackal's share of the work. The native boy in a blue tonic is probably playing the part of shahbash-wallah [good boy], and is encouraging the beasts to further efforts by praise. [end]
Mailed to Miss Clara Loyster, Auburn, R.D. 8. New York, year unknown: "Will I hope you are all well come down sometime before Friday if you can there is a good show Friday night Tell mother I will try and come home Sunday. Archie"
