This letter to Santa from “Earl” was discovered in History San Jose’s collection, and is full of classic toys including a spinning top, model train, and rocking horse. Earl certainly has a long list of presents he’d like from Santa; he says he’s “tried” to be a good boy, and he’s used the most important word, “please.” How would you rate Earl’s efforts? Should he have put in a few kind words for Mrs. Claus? Will Santa overlook his spelling errors? Does he really need that much candy?
