Shreveport Weekly News (Shreveport, Louisiana) 1 May 1866

According to accounts, Jefferson is in a critical situation. The lower portion of the city, says the Jimplecute, is inundated three or four feet. The loss to property by this overflow will be heavy.
Our neighbor of the Jimplecute has surrendered to seventeen bushels of fleas, which took refuge in the sanctum of the editor. Why did you not reverse things, and "take water?" We would ask for information whether there are any bath houses in Jefferson, and how many? Also, whether navigation is open in Jefferson?
