Tom Altherr located a fictional story in The Child's Friend (January 1848) in which a mother recounts to her son, George, how she 'liked boys' playthings best' when she was a little girl and could 'drive hoop, spin top, bat ball, jump, and climb' as well as her brothers could."


The Child's Friend, January 1848.  Full citation needed.  Submitted by Deb Shattuck, May 2013.


It is, of course, difficult to specify a reasonable date for a fictional account like this one.
