HOW LADY BUTTERFLY SPENT THE DAY.
From: Nursery Colored Picture Book. McLoughlin Bros., New York. ca 1870.

“Pretty Lady Butterfly, where have you been?  Why, all the day long you have hardly been seen; the sunlight was charming – then where did you hide?  I’ve looked for your pretty wings both far and wide.”

“I’ve been, Lady Prettyface, peeping at you, from flowers in your garden, both red, white, and blue.  At last it was tiring, this game of bo-peep, so I crept in a blossom, and fell fast asleep.”
