Merry Christmas, 2015 -- December 25, 2015

New York Tribune, 25-December-1915.

Merry Christmas, everyone. Peace on Earth and goodwill to men (women, and children).

A cartoon by Clare Briggs from the 25-December-1915 New York Tribune.  The first character whom Briggs asks for help is working on something headed "Pep's Diary."  This is probably Franklin Pierce Adams (FPA) who wrote a parody of Samuel Pepys' diary in the Tribune.  Doc Rice may be Grantland Rice, the sports columnist.
