The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Detroit Post and Tribune (Detroit, MI), June 28, 1884

Full Text

The submarine divers of Detroit desire to enter a formal protest against a certain set expression which is given vent to by every class of spectators present when the divers put on their diving shoes, whose lead sole weigh 20 pounds each. The expression alluded to is: "I would like to see him dance a clog dance." The divers pathetically informed the reporter that it has been utter by 30,000 people a year for but a few years less than 30,000 years, and that it is wearing in the nerves. They earnestly assure the public that they are not of a murderous disposition, but that there is a limit to even superhuman endurance.
