Where the Blackjack grows there arc Poast Oak runners in abundance. These Are very disc Reable to work with. It is a common saying that that is enough to make n preacher swear. If he does not swear it working in Post Oak runners there is no danger in driving oxen or anything of the kind in Short. To would be a very Good Man or he would think very bad things if he did not say them. The Black Sandy Laud is timbered with red Oak Hickory Poast Oak White Oak Walnut and occasionally a Black Jack.
