Those K’s referred to make a great team; hard to beat; even the Irish wit is left dumbfounded. A few more Scotch emigrants and Whitechapel cockneys would be good thing for this community. They are noted for their straight talk not like the L’s [1 line missing] follow up the K’s as for alphabet regulations, but ??? buck anything the K’s are interested in, for what reason is best known to themselves. The K’s are not looking for trouble but are not sleeping friends. Nuff said.
