10" Scrap Russian Girl Posing Two (2) stocking shaped pages tied together with string. Written in pencil at the top is "Robert B." The first paragraph asks Santa “While you are planning for everything nice. Pray let me give you a bit of advice”. The next two paragraphs read: Don’t take it hard, if I say in your ear, Santa, I think you were partial last year Loading the rich folks with everything gay Snubbing the poor ones who came in your way: Now, of all times in the year I am sure This is the time to remember the poor. Plenty of children there are in our city, Who have no fathers nor mothers to pity; Plenty of people whose working and heeding Scarcely can keep all their dear ones from needing Now if I came every year in December, They are the ones I should surely remember. Little red hands, that are aching and cold, You should have mittens your fingers to hold; Poor little feet, with your frost bitten toes, You should be clothed in the warmest of hose Continues for three more verses on reverse. The verse appears as early as 1878 in Christmas Chimes, Nelson & Phillips, NY. The second page has two additional verses one about a new baby that Santa shouldn’t miss and the second on Robbie’s wants. . slight discoloration
