"We have this lamp that they call in those days, TINNEN LAMP. People call it KITCHEN-BITCH,
and they call it cow-gut. The sodder-men make it from a little zinc. It's a open lamp, you use
a piece a cloth to make de wick and down de bottom is like a condense cyan [condensed-milk
can], which contain de oil, an' den you light it up 'ere."
