Interview with Harry Briggs, Sr. and Eliza Briggs
QUESTION 37
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU EVER THINK YOU MIGHT LOSE IT?

Eliza Briggs:

No, but I didn't know what the end would be. At the time, because we go to Charleston, you know, and different places. But with Marshall, in Charleston, during the time, Judge Marshall, he been judge at the time, he was down there. And the white lawyer, I can't remember his name, Plown, he asked the question, Plown had to get his book. Marshall just started rolling his hands at that, you know, and he just let it out. I feel really glad, because he didn't have to look in the book, to tell what he want to say. He just had it in his mind, he just had to roll his hands, and just let it out. It really was a good feeling for everybody. I won't say everybody, either, because a lot of people didn't like it, because they had to move. Couldn't get credit, we couldn't get credit, either.
