"After my first night 'on the boards' in the San Joaquin County Jail at Stockholm, it was with great relief that I learned I would get a bed to sleep in over the weekend. I had just made a routine appearance in court on the 'drunk charge' and the Judge had ordered me held over the week end for trial on Monday. . ."
