"Fall asleep an hundred years"

This interesting illustration is reportedly from this book, although I couldn't locate it there.

Via A Polar Bear's Tale.


  1. Obviously, you did not read it three times. We, your readers, appreciate your caution.

  2. I think the most interesting part is the "an hundred," demonstrated how common the 'H dropping' was in 19th century England, or at least in Devon, where John D. Batten was born.

  3. Reminds me of the chain letters that promise if you pass this on to ten people, good things will happen to you....
