LETTERS.

Empty the contents of a box of "anagrams" on a table so all the
letters are in a pile face downward. The players sit around the table.

The leader begins by turning up one of the letters and says, "Bird."
The players all see the letter, and the first one who responds with
the name of a bird commencing with that letter is given the card, and
then it is his turn to turn up a card, calling out "Bird," "Animal,"
"Fish," or "Famous Man," or anything he wishes. Suppose the first
letter was "E," and a player answered it with "Eagle"; the next letter
was "G," and "Famous Man" was called out, someone would say "Grant."

The one who has answered the most, thus obtaining the greatest number
of cards, is the winner.
