Mister Ron's Basement No. 1992
Charles Heber Clark was wildly popular as a humorist using the name Max Adeler. But before adopting that name, he wrote for years using the pen name of ‘John Quill.’ This week we will feature some of his early Quill tales.
Today we knock down the usual morality stories told to young people with a glimpse of harsh reality in his 1868 story, ‘The Three Wishes.’
Time: approx eleven and a half minutes
