"The following pages are a continuation of excerpts from a manuscript written by Mr. Beath concerning Nebraska's foremost legendary character, Febold Feboldson...
Antoine Barada ranks second only to Febold as a legendary or mythical character of Nebraska. There is evidence, however, that a person by this name really lived, evidence which is lacking in the case of Febold. As to how much of the story given below (written by members of the Project) is true, we do not know."
