Old Saint Nick Sends Christmas Greetings

Donald C. Minor of Greene County, Pennsylvania received this Old World Christmas card from his cousin, Carl Minor, when he was just a small boy, about 1907.

Saint Nick is depicted carrying a sack filled with black horses, a billy goat, a doll, a drum, a sword and a book.  The picture is hung from a sprig of mistletoe, with bells pealing below.

Hello Donald I suppose you are looking for this old fellow. Come down to our Christmas Tree on Xmas Eve.  Carl
