Dear Santa Clause: 1 think
it is about time I was writing
to you So you will not forget
me Christinas. I should like to
have an opal ring more than
any thing else, but if you can't
get the ring there are quite a
number of articles that would
acceptable. As for instance a
work box containing a thimble
and small pair of scissors, I
would also like to have a hand
kerchief box. I have a little
sister whose uame is Tiney. I
think she would like a rocking
chair and a little pasty set
consisting of rolling pin,
mixing bowl, potato masher,
and kneadining board. I will
close by asking you to remem
ber my little sister and I. I
hope you will not think I am
asking too much. I am 10
years old my name is Anna
Hawkins.
P. S Please excuse pencil as
I left my pen at school
