  1. I have loved all the cartoons in Saturday Evening Post since I was 7yrs. old. I was in a hospital from October to January due to a burned leg. My Dear mother brought the Post in and we would read the comics and mom would talk about some articles and what they meant. As time went on I have loved the Saturday Evening Post always.

    I would like to have many, many, many of the cartoons from over he years if possible?

  2. Very entertaining cartoons, I don’t think I have a favorite from this group. I will say #8 down by Jerry Dumas is the most peculiar (at least to me), from the caption to the illustration otherwise.
