A Brick for Dr Booth

Joseph Booth had a long running fued over a fence he put up between his property at Long Branch, NJ and a nearby ice cream parlor. In December of 1888, someone rang the door bell and hurled a brick at the door when it was opened. Joe was not home at the time and his elderly sister Rose barely missed being hit.
