Census commentary

This was taken from the August 11, 2010 newsletter, the RootsWeb Review (Vol. 13, No. 8), and it gave me the giggles:

This was written in the margin of the 1803 Census for Oglethorpe County Georgia, Capt Parmenas English District.

“Fishing Creek Academites part morallised the rest get drunk run in debt can’t pay go to jail breakout and run away.”
Thanks to Terry Robertson

obviously, this census taker felt the need to engage in some social commentary, sans punctuation.
