A Note From The Review:
December 11,1924
"Nothing is the the Daily today except Santa Claus letters" we heard a fellow say who doesn't pay a five cent piece for the sheet but reads it regulalry. This man did not stop to consider that he was once a small boy and enjoyed the thrills that go with seeing your name in the paper sighned to a Santa Claus letter. The Review prizes this feature of the paper highly and shall continue to print the letters until Old Santa arrives. Just put your boys and girls down to reading them and you will have a fine example of someone enjoying the Daily Review. The next old geezer that kicks at these letters we are going to look back in the thirty-year files and print his letter.
