Exciting Times

A.J. Houle, quoted in Donald Gilmore, Civil War on the Missouri-Kansas Border (Gretna: Pelican Publishing Company, 2006), p. 58:
These are exciting times here. You may form some idea of them when I tell you that I never lie down without taking the precaution to fasten my door, and fix it in such a way that if it is forced open, it can be opened only wide enough for one person to come in at a time. I have my rifle, revolver, and old home-stocked pistol where I can lay my hand on them in an instant, besides a hatchet & axe.
