“Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren’t go a-hunting
For fear of little men;
Wee folk, good folk,
Trooping all together;
Green jacket, red cap,
And white owl’s feather!”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from the parody Oedipus the Wreck (1888) by Owen Seaman. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

Most of these pages are devoted to a consideration of his early successes; the play of ‘Oedipus the Wreck,’ as rendered at Cambridge University in November 1887 A.D., furnishes the elucidation of his “Decline-and-Fall-Off”; while the book opens with an attempted reproduction of the Original Play-Bill of Sophocles, including actual Advertisements, date about 430 B.C.

The Preface is somewhere near the end of the book, p. 76.

Yours,
O. S.

“Are you really a soldier?” asked Woot, when they had all watched this strange tin person parade up and down the path and proudly flourish his sword.

“I was a soldier,” wa the reply, “but I’ve been a prisoner to Mr. Rust so long that I don’t know exactly what I am.”

“But – dear me!” cried the Tin Woodman, sadly perplexed; “how came you to be made of tin?”
