Give Thanks

The advice below was taken from a book called “Popularity Plus” and which was published in 1950.

Then as now, a “thank you” or an acknowledgement from the receiver would be much appreciated.

So-o, Uncle Harry sent you a check for ten smackeroos for your birthday, and little Sister Sue came up with a ten-cent hanky?

Did you remember to acknowledge Uncle Harry’s gift promptly? And did you tickle Susie pink with a warm “Thank you” for her nice little offering?

Always give thanks on the dot and heartily.

Never act bored with a gift, don’t give it away to someone else, and never, never ridicule it.

If you’re away at school and Pop sends you some folding money – even if it’s only your regular allowance – write and say, “Thanks, it came.”

Same when Mom ships off a box of food to you. Let her know you appreciate it. Besides, she’s probably wondering if it’s lost in the mail.
