November 5 1909 -- Another Baron Mooch strip that was omitted from Blackbeard's book. This one has Herriman stealing a gag from Winsor McCay's Dream of the Rarebit Fiend. The gag swipe is unfortunate (and a rarity for Herriman), but even so not all is bad. To atone for his sin Herriman offers us a lovely graphical flourish, framing the entire strip as a word and art balloon for the sleeping Baron.
