Nursery Rhymes And Stories

These are as plentiful as blackberries, and are far too numerous to be

treated of here. Some are very old, such as "Puss in Boots,"

"Whittington and his Cat," "Hey, diddle, diddle!" etc. Some have a

political meaning, others satirical, others amusing, funny, or

instructive, while a few are unmeaning jangles. "Dame Trot and her

Wonderful Cat," "The Cat and the Mouse," and, later, "The White Cat,"

"The Adventures of Miss Minette Cattina," are familiar to many of the

present time. Of the older stories and rhymes there are enough to fill a

book; not of or about the cat in particular, possibly; but even

that--the old combined with those of modern date--might be done; and for

such information and perusal the "Popular Rhymes," by J. O. Halliwell,

will be found very interesting, space preventing the subject being

amplified here. Nor do they come within the scope and intention for

which I have written respecting the cat.
