Mister Ron's Basement #1327
This week we have dug out an 1881 book called "Ha! Ha!! Ha!!!' It is composed of humorous pieces clipped from various newspapers. The authors are listed as Scissors and Paste.
The authors of the pieces are not credited but some of the newspapers are. From this we can determine some of the authors. Today's story was most likely written by C. B. Lewis, who usually used the pen name of M. Quad. Of course neither name was used here...
The tale is called 'The Man with the Umbrella.'
Time: approx four minutes
