In the "Little Jack Horner" entry from Brownhills' "Nursery Tales" series, little Jack is shown sitting on his hearth, his Christmas pie in one hand. He holds up his thumb with the famous Christmas plum, and says "What a good boy am I." Evidence of childhood Christmas bounty includes a chalk board leaning up against the baseboard and a drum which has been tossed aside. A bit of blue for Jack's necktie and a soft yellow wash enliven the brown transfer.

The "Little Jack Horner," familiar to every American child through the nursery rhyme, actually referred to the male line of the English Horner framily. What the tale does not reveal is that the last Horner was among the English aristocrats wiped out by World War I, ending a line of succession going back to Henry the Eighth's time.
