Signed lower left “Geo. G.”

Inquiring Little Girl: — “What book is that you’re reading, Auntie.”
Intelligent Auntie: — “Common Objects of the Sea-shore.”
I.L.G.: — “Why is it called that?”
I.A. (unthinkingly, and bored with questions): — “Because so many Low, Vulgar People come down to the Seaside here by these horrid Cheap Excursions.”
