This image finally showed up (after I'd almost given up) as part of a complete manuscript of loose pages in the bottom of a very old and dusty cardboard box. But only after I had torn my entire office apart.

"Wait!", said Marvin Bear, as he stepped out of the forest into the Eating Place.
"There IS a picnic. Oh, yes, there most certainly is.
Elly Bear and I have brought good things to eat
and I'm sure Raccoon will be very happy to bring some more.
Won't you Raccoon?"

Thoughtfully rubbing his paw over his nose and then under his chin,
Raccoon turned and looked at Marvin.

"Ah...yes...of course...anything you say...happy to...happy to!"
said Raccoon as he looked at the frowning faces around him.

Raccoon hurried off as quickly as he could go.
