A B C Jingles
The front cover features a cartoon of a little boy in a Buster Brown outfit ringing ABC bells. The letters ABC are written in red lettering on top of blue colored bells. At the bottom, the word "jingles" is written in red lettering against a white background. The back cover consists of a boy and girl cartoon listening to bells as they carry a basket and a bottle of Hanford's Balsam of Myrrh. The inside pages contain each letter of the alphabet and a few lines using words that begin with that letter to describe the uses of the Hanford's Balsam of Myrrh or just the product itself. For example, the letter A states "A stand for All external Ails?" There are drawn color illustrations to go along with each letter. The back end page is dedicated to a promotion for Hanford's Balsam of Myrrh that has been made since 1846. No page numbers.
