Mister Ron's Basement #1674
Before Palmer Cox became famous for his creation of 'The Brownies,' he spent many years writing a variety of humorous stories for newspapers and magazines in the 1800s. In 1895, he published a collection of some of these stories called 'Frontier Humor.'
Today's piece from that book concerns a woman taken for a flight by a hungry vulture. Yes, it is funny. It is called 'An Old Woman in Peril.'
Time: approx seven and a half minutes
