I’m a little girl nearly four years old and I want you to bring me a doll tea kettle and a little bean cooker, house shoes and mittens, apples, nuts, and candy. I’ll have a cake in waiting for you on the dining table. Your friend, Aline Horn, Kenefick, Okla.
I am not quite a year old, but I want you to bring me something to play with and I don’t want you to forget the other little boys and girls for they all love you. Your friend, Daisiella Crossett.
This year I don’t want you to forget the little Caddo girl. O! Kris! Won’t you please remember me Dec. 25th and bring me something. For my part of it I want some water colors, a New Testament, and stockings containing oranges, apples, nuts and candy. Don’t forget other children, which I know you won’t on purpose. I wish you the merriest Christmas that has ever been before, and more cheer and sunshine inside your door. Lovingly, Nina Frances Britlinger
Please bring me a basketball, a story book, and some games. But be sure not to forget other children. Yours, Mildred McCreary.
