In Santa's Letter Box :
' Immediately upon the -arrival of Santa Claus at the store some two
weeka ago we invited our army of little frienda to write him their wants
for Christmas. The result has been acveral bushel baskets full of letters
from youngsters living, some of them in far-distant statea but mostly
from little Jad and lassies whose home ia Portland. Every letter has
been carefully scanned, and all got Santa's attention. We thank the
thouaanda of children who showed their confidence in the store. We'll
strive hard to merit it until and after those "Kiddies" become grown
ups. We can't, of course, print alL.bnt have selected a few interesting
missives from the pile to reproduce here. : The youngsters - certainly
opened the peep-boles to their hearts wide to Santa, and their messages
make us feel all children again together. . Worth reading these:
