Malakoff Texas

Dear Santa Claus,

I am a little boy seven months old.  Please bring me a high chair, a teddy bear, a rocking horse, and any more little toys you can spare.  Also, bring me some candy and fruit.

Your little boy,

Eugene Martin

Dear Santa Claus,

I will write you a letter.  I want you to bring me a big doll and a big basket ball, and I want a sweater, and don’t forget my two lisle sisters and Daddy and Mother.

We all love you,

Frances Merworth

Dear Santa,

I am a little boy 3 years old, and I want an Indian suit, trombone, and a truck, candy nuts, and fruit.  Don’t forget my Mother, Daddy, and my Granddaddy, and Aunt Ta Ta, and be sure to take my things to Daddy at Texarkana for I will be there and I sure do want to see you.

Don’t forget Jimmie and Billie Gene and give them something, too.

Your little boy,

Chas. Bradford Dodson
