Letter to Santa
Dear Santa Claus
I am only seven years old and would like for you to bring me a desk and a chair so I can work at home with pleasure. I would like to have a pistol and a knife, lots of fireworks, all the goodies I can eat, and plenty of good health so I can have a good time shooting up Victoria. You can also bring me anything else you have to spare. I hate to wish you any harm, Santa, but hope your airship will fall in my back yard.
I will close, as ever, your little friend,
Victoria Daily Advocate, Tuesday, December 14, 1915
