~ Old Letters to Santa Claus ~
The old newspaper "The News Leader" of Richmond, Virginia used to have what they called a Santa Claus club.
Needy children would write letters to the editor and they would be published. People were asked to help these children if they could.
I have transcribed some of the letters from the paper on microfilm.
Some are kind of sad, some are funny and all are interesting. Also maybe some of you can find relatives who wrote letters.
I hope these children got what they wanted for Christmas! At least some of what they asked for.
