The Actor and the Farmer takes what may be a series maximum of eight pages (23-30). This unusual tale from Phaedrus (V 5, Perry #527) has extra phases not found in Phaedrus. The rich man suffers from boredom and so offers a reward for showing him a new kind of entertainment. Again, the wife ridicules the farmer when he comes home between public appearances. Finally, the bored rich man finishes the tale here by rewarding the man with the one hundred gold pieces for amusing him. The lower corner of the front cover is missing a piece torn off. It took me a long time to find this comic, and I have two left to find now. $.15.
