A Letter to Santa Claus.

Howard, the little son of Hon. W. H. Felton, addressed the following unique letter to the giver of all good things to little children:

Dear Mr. Santa Claus:

I’m bothering you again, as Christmas is here.  Well, to begin with, I want some fine paper and envelopes, and a nice finger ring and something else nice.  Please leave a little note as to how you are getting on—also your family.  Good bye, Santa Claus.  I wish you well until next year.  Please put a little something in my stocking.  Our house is low and you can easily get on it with your reindeer.  Our house is three miles from Cartersville.  I have been in Washington, but am at home now.  I hope you can find me.  Good bye, dear Santa Claus.

Howard E. Felton.
