Found for a buck in a local junk store. Hmmmm.

(c) 1928. Signed on the inside page, "To Jim Henry from Two Black Crows, Moran & Mack, Sincerely, Charley Mack, 12-5-31"

Sample at random... oh, I dunno... page 129:

"What did they tell you?"

"Cap'n, sir, dey said I was strong as a lion but my feet was impossible."

"They ruled you out on account of your feet?"

"Yassir, Cap'n."

"Then what the hell are you doing here?"

"Cap'n, sir, I was down at de deepo when a white man say, 'All you boys get on.' And here I is."

"Would you like to get into the Army?"

"Cap'n, sir, I don't want nothing else."

"Why? Hiding out on account of some crime?"

"Lawd, nossir! I'm a good Baptist boy, I is."

Can't WAIT to read the whole thing.

Golliwogs (featured in Little Noddy by Enid Blyton, but, according to BBC's 'Woman's Hour' "hijacked by racists" in Engand) were mentioned in the excellent "35 Paces to Baker Street"...

Vera Miles to blind Van Johnston: "It's one of those rag dolls. We don't have them in the United States. What are they called? Oh yes! Golliwogs".
