Abstract
A large pamphlet in very delicate condition. There are seventeen fables on twenty-eight pages in padded verse for children. The paper covers are loose. No T of C or index. Reading these fables, I am reminded of Linda Schlafer's talk on drilling good behavior into little children. The morals range from Obey your mother to Do not judge by clothes to Do not go too far from home. Analysts today might have special fun with #10, Little Mabel's Walk, the point of which seems to be that it is best to be generous, e.g., to bring flowers to the orphan. The next fable, The Grasshopper's Feast, promises that if you are friendly, you will be invited to parties.
