Biographical/Historical Note

Since a dray's movement along primitive streets caused considerable damage, in 1839 the Little Rock, Arkansas, city council passed an ordinance requiring draymen, cabinet furnishers, drivers of heavy wagons, and operators of trading boats to obtain a license for "each and every dray and furniture car to be run in this city." The ordinance was renewed in 1842.
