Astride My Horse, I Send You Christmas Greetings!

My mother recently recalled that her grandmother, May Laura Stephenson Minor, had been a great one to write; folks loved receiving her cards.  Her son, Donald C. Minor, was just a young boy when relatives and friends started sending their seasonal greetings, which were collected and carefully stored – probably by his card-loving mom.

Ethel of Morgantown, West Virginia, sent Donald this happy Christmas Greeting. The smiling girl sits astride her stick horse which is all decked out with sleigh bells; a ball and a book lie on the ground behind her.

Dear Donald, I want Santy to bring you lots of pretty things. I hope your mama is better so you can all have a Merry Xmas.  Ethel
