Notes
Content : Written on border: "v2" Printed on border: "A weary hunter was returning home one evening with his rifle loaded, when in order to get rid of his spare shot, he aimed at the globe of the weathercock and fired. The village boys were, of course, anxious to find the bullet, and they enlarged the hole. The following spring a family of tom-tits was reared in the globe, with the results depicted in the illustration." Includes additional text.
