N.d., circa 1940. 9 page story. The story is told in quasi-black dialect, and there is probably a racist dimension to the story involving a black family, although the author may not have had an invidious intent at the time. While the illustrations are a bit crude, and possibly deliberately so, the author does have a comedic spark, notwithstanding the offense someone might take to it. Certainly an interesting relic from an era when there were no inhibitions with regard to stereotyping.
