The Christmas letter, a classic of tta

"Dear Friend—Another little child

"The mother, creeping back, gaunt

down the thin little bones with those
that strew the road and has sunk be
side them, never to rise again.

voice of one who watches us as we

"Now, the children and the mothers
In Armenia are dreading the winter.
'Just human remnants they are, not
protected, many of them, from the ele

The most favored have merely shred

Christmas songs and laugh and light
