From the Burlington (NJ) Gazette, 20 Jan. 1883, p.3, col. 3:
-- An exciting runaway took place in Burlington on Friday afternoon oflast week. James J. Goodenough was driving a two-horse sleighing team upBroad street, there being three or four persons in the sleigh. Mr.Goodenough, not being familiar with the ground, undertook to drive acrossthe Commons in order to get out of the way of an approaching train. Whenthe sleigh struck the curbstone the tongue was broken loose, and thehorses ran on, leaving Mr. Goodenough and party sitting in their sleighin a state of bewildered astonishment. The horses ran down Tathamstreet, passing the West End hotel in their mad career, and turning tothe right went overboard into the cold waters of the Assiscunk, by theside of Oliver's coal yard. There was some ice on the reek but thehorses went through it and found themselves enjoying an unexpected bath.The water is several feet deep at that point, but the animals managed tokeep their heads above water until they were fished out, which was nosmall job. Several persons went to the rescue of the horses. Plankswere placed in the water with one end on the wharf, and then by puttingcarpet around one horse and using ropes the animal was pulled out quiteeasily. The other horse was in the water nearly an hour, being close tothe wharf. Finally ropes were put around the body of the horse and themen lifted him up out of the water and on the wharf. Fortunately thewater was not over the heads of the horses, the tide being half way down.The ice waÐVì*7*♣♣s covered with snow and the horses were no doubt astonishedwhen they found themselves struggling in the water. The horses wereplaced in the stable of Samuel W. Taylor, and well cared for until thenext morning, when they came out looking almost as well as usual. Mr.Goodenough wanted to drive home that night but Mr. Taylor, knowing thatit would be an unwise thing to do, objected to his doing so. When thehorses plunged into the water they were quite warm from their long drive.The team was [a] valuable one, and we understand the owner has beenoffered $1,000 for them. After the tongue came loose from the sleigh thehorses did not start at once, but were scared by some persons in thevicinity. Mr. Goodenough lives between Moorestown and Marlton, and is abrother of the late Captain Goodenough of this city. All thingsconsidered the accident was less disastrous than might have beenexpected.
