The date checks out. The full text is available at HathiTrust.org. It's in the public domain, so I don't know why Google is restricting it.

Hi, gang. It's been a while. Did you miss me?

Previously antedated to 1906,  with references to strip tunk and *pajama poker" 1904.

I have found a reference to the exact phrase "Strip poker" that seems to be from 1904.

(With apologies to the Tin Woodman)

Must I attend recitations ?
Why can't I cut when I choose?
Why is "strip poker" forbidden?
Why can't a man have his booze?


Google dated to 1904. We all know how unreliable Google dating is, but this appears to be the top of the same page.
