Default By Hook Or By Crook !

I've always wondered what the source was for John's quote "By Hook Or By Crook I'll Be The Last In This Book" on the last page of the Anthology book. I've scanned the photo credits etc so many times without any luck...does any one have any ideas?

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">That quote is a Lennon original, written when he was a boy. It is assumed the quote is in his handwriting, probably taken from The Daily Howl, a comic he wrote as a youngster.

Thanks Johnna Lynn! I thought the writing looked like a younger John! I do love the way it was placed on the very last page!

It is nice to know someone placed that quote at the end Of Anthology with care.

By Hook or By Crook is an old cliche meaning "by any means possible, be it fair or foul." I don't know the origin, but Sleepy might. She has extensive knowledge of cliche origins.

Supposedly John wrote this in an autograph album belonging to his cousin Stanley Parkes , in 1948 aged eight
