I Still Believe

The original New York Sun does not exist anymore, as it went out of business in 1949. (There is today, however, a newspaper of the same name.) But it's most famous editorial was written September 21, 1897.
"DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old.
"Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus.
"Papa says, 'If you see it in THE SUN it's so.'
"Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?

Francis P. Church pens the answer.

Brief background on the two people (scroll to the bottom).

"The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see."
