Nice!  As you can see from Disraeli’s distinctive profile, as well as from the JT monogram in the lower left, this was drawn by John Tenniel, best known as the illustrator of Lewis Carroll’s Alice books.

  Wesley Morse, Pencil, pen and ink and gouache on stationery, 7.25 x 10.75in. 

  • How It Seemed To Talk With You Today — Wednesday Night, 1922-23(?)

 • To Late (sic) — Thursday Night, 1922-23(?) 

Although the majority of the drawings in the collection are stand-alone gags, there are three sets of two-panel sequential pages. This is a splendid example, with Morse cleverly utilizing the tossed life preserver as a unifying visual and story element. Also, There is a poignant undertone here, a sense of longing and loss, present through much of his illustrated correspondence with Avonne.
