Patricide – His Son the Burglar!

Illustration:  Hold Up Father.  Peck’s Bad Boy and His Pa.  Written by George W. Peck.  Illustrated by True Williams.  W. B. Conkey Company. 1900.

“THEN I STOOD OFF AND TOLD HIM TO HOLD UP HIS HANDS.”

I told my chum Pa was a coward, and we fixed up like burglars, with masks on, and I had Pa’s long hunting boots on, and we pulled caps down over our eyes, and looked fit to frighten a policeman . . . I put the cold muzzle of the ice revolver to Pa’s temple, and when he woke up I told him if he moved a muscle or said a word I would splatter the wall and the counterpane with his brains.

    1. You are wise! There is a great deal of hate in this family – seriously, how outrageous is it to suggest to your friend that you dress up and threaten to blow your father’s head off! Although you are confused – truth is – you have fully understood the weird drift of Peck’s Bad Boy! IT IS A VERY DISTURBING BOOK!
