""As long as cotton is ginned, it will be shipped by boats. River steamers to New Orleans. Ocean cargo vessels to Liverpool or Boston, or round the Horn to China and India. If you think Memphis is something, wait until you see it in New Orleans! There's a special breed of work-along-shoreman-screwmen, they're called-who load cotton in the ocean vessels. They take jack-screws and tighten those bales down into the hold of a ship till it's a caution. Why, there have even been cases when a ship's timbers were sprung and strained, so tightly were the cotton bales stowed. They get top wages, those screwmen. A silk-hat crowd of workers."

Frances Parkinson Keyes "Steamboat Gothic'"


He was an officer of the Screwman's Benevolent Association.
