"The Park Next Year"
(1893), in the middle of the seventh of eleven paragraphs about things to be seen in Prospect
Park is found this line:
"The dwarf trees from Japan, about which the EAGLE recently spoke, are sturdy little
chaps who purpose [sic] braving out the winter without going indoors
or asking anything in the way of straw overcoats."
