The end of the world

According to the Monthly Weather Review, 32-522, a period of intense darkness occurred in Memphis, Tenn., for about fifteen minutes at 10 a.m. on Dec. 2, 1904. “‘We are told,’” Fort quotes, “‘that in some quarters a panic prevailed, and that some were shouting and praying and imagining that the end of the world had come.’”

—Charles Fort, The Book of the Damned, p233 (The Complete Books of Charles Fort, Dover, c1974).
