“Dear Santa Claus, Thought I would write you a few lines to tell what I would like for Christmas. I would like a pair of Skates and a game, and a pair rubbers about fours and a half. I wrote to you last Christmas but you forgot me but I hope you don’t forget me this Christmas. Will you please bring me a little candy to, I am eleven years old. I go to the Franklin School, I live on West Third St. My number is 1406 Please do not forget me. Yours Very Truly Robert Barrand”
This Christmas I hope you can sit back and enjoy some old letters (around 1900) from my (Matt) distant relatives that came from France and settled in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
