Columbia, LA. 60 miles. Grass lot. Fair, warm, and gusty. Reasonable pre-sale. Columbia is an old river port where the brick-faced building of the waterfront, once hotels, and saloons, and sporting houses have been replaced with antique stores, crafts shops, and a few coffee houses. Spring has again caught up with us in Columbia. The bare tress of yesterday’s town are green with new leaves in today’s town. The azaleas are flowerings along with rich tulips in some yards. This is drainage of the delta where the river systems of the Mississipi still flood cotton fields after a heavy rain. This is the south where circuses linger before chasing the last frost northward.
