Sacramento Depot incident 1876


I came across the following item and thought it might interest you.

Railway Age, Oct. 26, 1876, Vol. 1, pg. 388.

“A traveler set down on a Sacramento railroad depot a box with slats over the top. A young man sat down upon it. He got up hastily, saying something about red-hot pins. The box contained a big fretful porcupine.”
