On December 16, 1914, Helen W. sent her friend Elsie Haas a Christmas message. “Dear Elsie, Are you going to get many Christmas presents. I don’t think I will. I wish you a Happy Christmas from your friend, Helen W.”
A message like this makes me wonder so many things. Why did Helen think she wasn’t going to get presents? Did she end up getting presents? Even if she thought she was bad that year why would she tells her friends?! I wish I knew the answers!
