Abstract
Previously, I had found the third reader, listed under the same date. This well used copy of the second reader contains The Cat and the Rat (14), LM (21), The Fox and the Rabbits (33), The Two Goats (142), and The Bear and the Kettle (170). In The Cat and the Rat, a new development interrupts the usual dialogue about waiting to eat the rat until he is larger; that is, a dog shows up, and the cat runs away. LM has two illustrations, one slightly overlaid on the other; this may be the simplest text version of LM I have seen. The Fox and the Rabbits is all talk; the rabbits dismiss the fox when he has asked them out to find turnip tops. The two goats cooperate with each other, one by lying down, to negotiate the narrows; this fable is well illustrated. Many pages are either torn or soiled. The Bear and the Kettle is a good, simple story that is new to me. The bear wandering into the empty hut burns first his nose, then his hands, and then his feet as he deals with the kettle of boiling water. Then he roars and so alerts the townsfolk, who come and shoot him.
