The House passed the bill on Feb. 10 and then sent it to the state Senate. The Senate quickly passed the bill and sent it on to the Gov. Alexander G. McNutt, for him to sign into law. He signed the bill on Feb. 20, 1840. (August 20, 2010, Page 3B)

Later on, my mother moved my sisters and I a little closer to the Square on South Lamar just south of where Johnson Avenue comes into South Lamar. The chiming of the clock was even more audible.
