Hereby presenting an excerpt from the novel The Adventures of Tommy Postoffice: The True Story of a Cat (1910) by Gabrielle E. Jackson, who also wrote Denise and Ted Noodles. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.
“How ‘s that for a fine showin’ for the lady of the postoffice? Ain’t that as dandy a litter as ever yer clapped yer eyes on? Five of ’em, and every one a beaut ! Here’s the very mother’s son of ’em,” cried Pete, as he held up by its wee “neck handle”
a tiny reproduction of Peggy Postoffice,— white nose, white shirt-front, white stockings, white tail-tip and all complete. Five pairs of bright little eyes blinked at the men in the brilliant sunlight of the office, five little mouths squealed in chorus, five cunning kittens not two weeks old squirmed and wriggled about upon the mail-pouch, while their proud but somewhat anxious mother warbled to them reassuringly, and rubbed herself against the legs of the admiring audience.”
