A Letter to Santa, 1905

[December 20, 1905] -


Cloverport, Ky., Dec. 17  Dear Santa I am a good little boy and I want you to bring me lots of nice things, I want a little red wagon and a pair of brass toed boots, And say Santa won't you move Cannelton across the river from Cloverport and make all the girls quit flirting with me.  From your little Friend Billy Wilson.
