The "One Child's Memory From The Past" Story
It was an ordinary day. Opened the morning paper and there it was … once more. Seems every year about this time some newspaper in the United States publishes the letter about a little girl named Virginia who writes to the editor of the newspaper inquiring about Santa Claus. Our Lancaster newspaper usually publishes the story and every year I read it. Still is fun and interesting to read after all these years. So, just in case you have never seen the letter, or in case you may want to refresh your memory about Virginia's interest in Santa, here is the story. The original story was published in The New York Sun on Tuesday, September 21, 1897. Hope you enjoy it one more time. It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
