Wish You Were Here, from R.F. Outcault

Here’s a 1905 postcard by R.F. Outcault, in which a monkey and a parrot have a heck (yes, I came right out and said it!) of a time. It is copyrighted by the J. Ottmann Litho Co. of New York on the front, and the undivided back has no further information.

Gosh, I wish I could figure out what that word is in the note — “Say they are pretty ???? yes just like yours truly.” I feel like I’m missing a vital piece of data here.

One comment on “Wish You Were Here, from R.F. Outcault

  1. What I am seeing is:

    Yes I guess they did
    have a – of a time
    the same as we have
    had for some time
    but I guess the one
    difference they drew
    blood and we didn't
    though (?) the tussle
    Say they are pretty ain't
    they, yes just like
    yours truly
