NICHOLAS: Mamma says that I may send you a picture ofa little girl who has been raised on ST. NICHOLAS. We have every one that ever was printed. The story that I always liked best of all is " Dressing Mary Ann," in 1880, because Mamma made it come true with my French doll, only her name is Cornelia. Ever so many things in bT. NICHOLAS will come true if you only try.

Mine only knows two stories. Mamma says that you don't like long letters, but she is sure you will like me, and I am sure I hope so. Your friend always, JULIE. LONGDALIZ lII.'F.S., ALLEGHANY Co., VA.

They are killed very frequently. I should like to see one, but at a distance. From your little friend, Auce K. ST. PAUL, Mum. MY DEAR ST. NICHOLAS: Although I have taken you for more than five ears, I have only written once, and that was to Jack. So more
