Gabrielle Ray – A Present with Pain – The Weekly Dispatch (London) – Sunday 19th December 1920

YULE GIFTS TO STAGE STARS

  Gabrielle Ray, – “A present with a pain.”

 

Last Christmas Eve I received a nice long letter and a big box from an old school chum. The writer explained in the letter that she was sending me two stockings to hang on my bed rail and to be opened on Christmas Morning.

They were beautiful silk stockings packed full of the good things I used to love when at school – apples, nuts, crackers, the toffee called “stickjaw,” some small dolls, and at the bottom half a dozen beautiful handkerchiefs.

I was too ill for the rest of the day to enjoy anything; but I still play with my dolls.
