Untitled (James J. Reynolds)

Last Sabbath morning, after church, Mr. James J. Reynolds and wife, while returning from Bluff Point Baptist Church, about one-half mile from the church, his horse became frightened at the top of his carriage. He got out of the carriage to lower the lines in the bit, when the horse (a colt) became unmanageable and started to run. Reynolds hung to him until he turned the carriage over, throwing Mrs. Reynolds out, hurting her hip at the time quite severely, but she is quite smart again. The horse and carriage came on towards home. The carriage, not much of a carriage, a complete wreck, horse not hurt. Considered a lucky accident.
