Mister Ron's Basement #952

A young robin gets some book learning about flying in 'A Delayed Flight' from Thomas L. Masson's 1905 collection, 'A Corner in Women and Other Follies.'

All things considered, this may be the first time the phrase 'delayed flight' might have ever been used in print.

Time: approx five minutes
