Note: Combs tells Alan about courting, square dances, snakehandlers and escaping from snakes. Alan asks Ada why folks handle snakes. She replies: "They think the Lord's a tellin them to do all that work – he ain't tellin them nothing! You read your bible and see if he tells you! Why, the Lord don't even know people like that!" Alan Lomax: "A transcription from the Miniature recorder [Midgetape]. She tells about hunting, snake-handlers, boa-constrictors and hippo she saw, banjo tunes, accidents, killings."
