Herriman Saturday

Friday, February 7 1908 -- Along with another installment of Today in Sports, Herriman does his second strip in the Mister Amos Pidjin series today; wonderful dialogue in this one. A few quick annotations -- in panel five those mentioned are local L.A. luminaries, mostly of the ethically questionable variety. In the final panel Herriman engages in some rather dicey humor by suggesting that Admiral 'Fighting' Bob Evans, commander of the Great White Fleet, would lose in battle to Admiral Togo of Japan.
