Letter Of Note of the Day: A slightly singed letter to Santa stashed inside a chimney by siblings a century ago was discovered by the Dublin man who currently lives in their former home.
“I want a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves and a toffee apple and a gold penny and a silver sixpence and a long toffee,” reads the letter penned in 1911 by brother and sister Alfred and Hannah Howard.
Homeowner John Byrne says he found the letter in 1992 on a shelf inside the fireplace, and has held onto it ever since.
The Irish Times reports that census records list three children as living in that house in 1911: 7-year-old Alfred (Fred), 10-year-old Hannah, and 13-year-old Lily. They were born in England to a plumber named Fred Hamer Howard and his wife, Mary Elizabeth.
