Furthermore Tenniel's illustration, done after Carroll's instruction, shows the Frog-Footman standing by a solid marble pillar and under a marble canopy. There is no doubt that the provenance of the Frog-Footman is the letter to The Times. His other 'Alice' book, Through the Looking-glass appeared half a dozen years later and collected up other stories Carroll had told to the Liddell children. We cannot open either of the Alice books and read for more than a page or two, without coming on some logical puzzle.

Well, it is no use your talking about waking him,' said Tweedledum, 'when you are only one of the things in his dream. ' 'I am reall' said Alice and began to cry.

At other times the principle of Logic that Carroll has in mind is difficult to identify. Take this example where the White King waits with Alice for the arrival of one of the messengers.
