MARK TWAIN TO RED CROSS.
Writer Commends the Use of Stamps to Add to Relief Fund.
In a letter to the Red Cross Christmas Stamp Committee Mark Twain has indorsed the idea of the stamps and mentioned the personal use to which he puts them. His letter says:
Ladies: In paying New Year bills, and also in postponing them, I will stick on a Red Cross stamp. If you will suggest in print that the whole country do the same the Red Cross will prosper to your content. I know this, for I know that all America is warm at the heart and generous at this time of the year, and will thank you for your suggestion and follow it. Respectfully yours,
Such has been the success of the sale of the stamps within the last week that the committee has decided to continue the sale until Jan. 1.
