Santa Claus Letters: 1915 Portsmouth Valley Sentinel

Dear Santa Claus – I am a little girl nine years old. You were so good to me last year I do hope you won’t miss me this year. I want a doll and doll buggy, hair ribbons, a sewing machine, dishes and some good books. Please do not forget my sister, Fern. She wants a big doll, irons and ironing board and doll buggy, lots of oranges, nuts, apples and candy. Please don’t forget my grandpa. He likes lots of apples and everything good to eat. Be sure to come in the front door. We will leave it unlocked.

Dear Santa – After being good a whole year I’m expecting something extra nice. I want a new pair of purple, green and striped silk hose, some friendship links, and a rubber doll. Don’t forget my dear little friend, Vivian Daniels. She wants some films for her new camera, a rubber teething ring and some colored silk hosiery. Don’t forget to bring plenty of candy. Dear Santa since you have so many little girls and boys to bring presents to I will not ask for any more.
