"The Same Old Christmas Story Over Again". Two children are peacefully slumbering while their dreams are pictured about them. The little girl's dreams are filled with fair tales and nursery rhymes, Mother-goose, Jack the Giant-Killer, Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots. The little boys dreams are of adventure, Gulliver and Lilliputians, Daniel Boone, Alladin and the Forty Thieves, Robinson Caruso, and many more. Both children, of course, dream of Santa Claus. From Harper's Weekly, Jan. 4, 1873.
