Dear Mrs. Meloney,
There are a good many things that America needs, if Santa Claus could only give them!
Here are a few of them:
1. That every molly-coddle, professional pacifist, and man who is "too proud to fight" when the nation's quarrel is just, should be exiled to those out of the way parts... where the spirit of manliness has not yet penetrated.
2. That every decent young man should have a family, job, and the military training which will enable him to keep this country out of war by making it dangerous for any ruthles military people to attack us.
3. That every youngster should have a good and wise mother; and every good woman a child for her arms.
4. That we may all of us become an efficient, patriotic, and nobly proud people - too proud either to inflict wrong or to endure it.
Good luck, Always yours
