Boy Writes Letter

Description

In the upper portion of the card a black-haired boy dressed in blue uses an enormous red feather pen to write a letter. There is an inkwell to the left, and around the upper portion of the card various pieces of paper including a check, math problem, letters, package, and card. Printed below him in different fonts is the poem/greeting: "Merry Xmas / A pen can do such / varied things, - / it can sign a check, for one, - and figure one's / expenses up, and even post a / dun; and write a letter gay / or tense, address a package, / too, - but the best of its / accomplishments is / wishing joy for you."
