> Christmas is approaching and all my
thoughts are on the presents which
Santa Claus will give to all good girls
and boys. , But every thoughtful' boy
and girl must bear in mind the orphan
asylums and hospitals. Also remember
Hhe very poor households where few
Christmas gifts come on: account ,of
the lack ! of means to obtain, them. {.
I have thought of this for some time,
and have decided to sacrifice so.me v of
my "presents and also, buy more, with
the hard earned' bank money : I have
.saved this year so, that I may be able
. to^gladden the hearts of thes? children
and make them feel so happy,' that they
will forget all (their, trouble and pain.
' I am going to try to make a happy
Christmas for these children every. year
if it' be possible for me v to do It.
