From the journal of Mosiah Hancock: On April 9 , my Uncle Alvin presented me with a pair of shoes, which I dared not wear except on Sundays. On Sundays I tucked the shoes under my arm and started for meeting, slipping them on just before I arrived there. After meeting was out, I would take them off and walk home in my bare feet. They were so roomy that I kept them in good condition for three years, then turned them over to my brother Francis Marion. I hadn’t even dared to wear the shoes while cutting wood, for fear of cutting them.
