Title:Injun babies: stories for good little boys and girls, with love and best wishes from their old uncle, Maynard Dixon : TSS,
Creator/Contributor:Dixon, Maynard, 1875-1946, creator
Manuscript consists of six stories written by Maynard Dixon for the Christmas of 1913. The cover is illustrated with a sketch
of a Native American child drawn by Dixon, and he also handlettered the title page, and the title of each story. Dixon took
the stories' titles from the protaganists' names, including A-Way-She-Go, Me-No-Kan, Tu-Kwik-At, and No-Pah-No-Mah. The stories
are morality fables on the virtues of being well-behaved, trustworthy, and diligent children. Dixon included space for songs
within several of the stories, but never filled in the verses.
