Illustration of monkeys and dogs at a party, one monkey is trying to tempt a dog with mistletoe. Text on the card reads: "With many merry Christmas Greetings."

This card is from the Read Thomson collection of Christmas cards from 1880 to 1900, in the Decorative Art collection at National Museums Liverpool.

The verse on the back (not shown) reads:

"Consider, Madam, if you please,
The license of the Season.
To chafe at Christmas sports like these,
Is neither rhyme nor reason.
Such small attentions are allow'd,
By princes and by peasant.
Permit me ma'am! and make me proud -
You'll find it not unpleasant."

A decorative letter T has been stamped on the back three times and some of the ink has marked the front.

Postmark on envelope: 24 December 1882.

Accession number 50.30
