The lot comes with original Tenggren pen and ink artwork of the lady milking the cow with a pail of spilled milk, as seen on page 67, for the story titled "No Use Crying." The artwork is pen and ink on board measuring 12" x 8". Pinholes in borders. Tape on borders from previous framing. In pencil on top is written "Farm Book." Overall detailed image is 8" x 7".
