A Clare Briggs Drawing for Flu Season

It is now officially flu season in the State of New York. Chances are the drawing accompanying a 1915 autograph letter by Clare Briggs to a fan depicts nothing more serious than the common cold, but one can't be too careful.

December 23, 2018 Update:  Well, what do you know? Just three days prior to my posting this letter and drawing, Mike Lynch posted a vintage 1913 video which includes Clare Briggs making a demonstration drawing of a very similar image. This must have been a well known Briggs subject, as he chose it for both the 1913 film demonstration and the 1915 souvenir drawing.
