Mr. Bunion: Why._Ah._I guess! Yes! What do youhat do you want? I was enjoying this book, but._
/
Mrs. Bunion: Get out your pencil! Christmas is approaching and we must make out a list of those we should remember-
Mr. Bunion: Well. Eh there is your father and mother.

Mrs. Bunion: yes, and your father and mother, your sister Betsy and your brother Ralph! Then theres my sister Ann and brother Hec!
Mr. Bunion: And your two nieces Geraldine and Lizzie

Mrs. Bunion: Yes. And your two nephews Oscar and Alfred! Now lets see then comes your Aunt Sophia and your Uncle Ephraim and your Grandfather and Grand--
Mr. Bunion: Mother yes! Who else?
/
Mrs. Bunion: Well, there is my Aunt Cursty and My Uncle Blutch! I ought to send something to my Grandfather. Also my Grandmother. Have you got them all down? Who else is there?
Mr. Bunion: No one I think but the neighbors!--
/
Mrs. Bunion: Yes, I ought to send something to Mrs. Hep next door and her sick husband. Also their children._And there's our hired girl and the janitor and his family, John the newsboy, mail carrier
