Dear Santa:
I want a doll and a doll cart too, a stove, a blackboard and a story book too, a rocking chair and a ring.  I have the teddy bear yet.

Dear Santa Claus:
Please bring me a horse named “Clyde” and a watch.  Bring me a train, a wagon, lots of candy and nuts and a barrel of apples.  Bring anything else you see that you think I need.

Dear Santa Claus:
I thought I would write and tell you what I want for Christmas.  I want a ring, a bracelet, a book, a locket and chain, a watch, a French harp, a pony and lots of candy and nuts.  That is all for this time.
Yours truly, Minnie Willis


Skidmore, Mo., Dec. 3, 08
Dear Santa Claus:
I want to write you a few lines to let you know that I live in Skidmore again so you will be sure not to forget me.  Please bring me a train that runs on a track, a little automobile, a little barn with some little horses and a knife.  My little brother can play with them too.  I would like some candy, banannas and oranges.
From your little friend, Cecil Ross
