1 volume (16 pages) : illustrations ; 13 cm
"Chit Chat" is a compilation of illustrated stories, poetry, advice to the reader, and a "premium list" with advertisements for the Nelson brothers' other books and publications. The periodical meant "for the boys and girls" was published by William J. Little and Ethan Allen, the alter egos of Arthur and Walter Nelson respectively. Many of the stories in Chit Chat are published serially in other issues and other publications. This issue includes "How the Hunts Became Rich," "The Castaways of Mink Island" and "The Story of a Gun Boat." It also features a piece entitled "Unknown Wives of Well Known Men" and, in the Boys Column, an article called "How to Make a Traverse," a type of sled the author recommends. One of the poems, "Clumfields Discovery," is presented as the work of the imaginary Ethan Allen's daughter, Mary Allen. Other stories, poetry and advertisements by contributors such as Burt Green (sometimes referred to as Birt or Burt), William Little and his wife round out this edition that is presented in a two-column format.
