Wm. Travis was standing on his wagon seat east end Forest avenue bridge, Wednesday morning, clearing out the street lamp, when the horse started. His coat was caught in the wheel, and by the time the west end of the bridge was reached, he was minus his coat, and had received injuries on the head, hands, and hip, and was "shuck up" generally. --Item in the May 20, 1882 Ypsilanti Commercial newspaper
