Description

1907. A collection of verse by Emily P. Bissell who wrote prose and poetry under the name of Priscilla Leonard. She is best known as the person who introduced the Christmas Seal to America. In 1907, her cousin, Dr. Joseph Wales, needed money to operate his tuberculosis hospital for the poor. Emily Bissell decided to sell Christmas Seals, adopting a successful Danish practice. She wanted to raise $300 with her first Christmas Seals; she ended up raising $3,000. The Christmas Seals that are still used every year are the descendants of Emily Bissell's efforts nearly ninety years ago.
