In 1897 an eight year old girl named Virginia O¹Hanlon wrote a letter to The New York Sun in which she asked, "some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus?Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?" The editor¹s famous answer reads, in part, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity exist."This booklet reprints an attractively designed and illustrated version made by Augustus Kaiser in the 1920s. It is 24 pages long, and is accompanied by an decorative envelope, as it is our intention that people will send it as an elaborate Christmas Card.
