This peculiar paper started in 1848 and probably lasted less than a year.  The subtitle is “Devoted to all his nephews and nieces.”  The editor is “Uncle Jesse” and the publisher J.W. Poland.  It is filled with stories for amusement, bad jokes, and “Tales of Captain Gasket.”  There are a few advertisements.  Only a handful of issues are known.

Adopted by Nancy Grayson, in honor of her nieces and nephew
