Ramblers for 1898 and it shows the little box but on a different tube ( ladies top tube )
Thanks for the post Bill. With my model 28 it appears the tool box's abrasion "foot print" reveals it has lived on the seat mast likely from the beginning.
The below image is from Mark @Rusty McNickel; thank you Mark! He had the following to say on the bicycle's case:
"Absolutely stunning 28! This top tube mounted, shaped case was used up to 1897 and offered standard on men's, and women's models. I have seen examples and they were most certainly leather. 1898 saw the introduction of the men's "triangular" bag as standard equipment and the women's now were provided standard a "compact, oblong tool case, new style" which may be the only clue as to the use of a non-leather material. No images of it appear in the 98 catalog. In the 1899 catalog, there is an image of what most certainly appears to be this case but not much fanfare otherwise. I may offer some info that may speak to the rarity of this case. I have a women's Rambler, 1900/34 that I received fairly intact. There was no case but clear wear evidence of one having been mounted in the rear triangle and resting on the fender, under the saddle. I only have the 1900 Paris Expo ABC catalog, not a complete Rambler catalog. Although it is brief, there is not mention of any case being offered whatsoever, so it may have been an add-on. ABC was tightening the belt. So it seems this case may have been offered for just two years."

I would love to share Mark's @Rusty McNickel comments on the grips:
"The grips offer even more intrigue, I think. The corkaline grips are clearly the material we are most familiar with and ALMOST exclusively mentioned in Rambler's sales material. The lone exception as far as I can see, the 1898 catalog offers on the two Women's models only, "celluloid and cork grips". I see no other year where this non-cork material is mentioned. Offered in 1898 only. Very rare, indeed. 1899 was back to cork only grips."
