This letter to Santa, written in 1911, was discovered by John Byrne while puttering about inside his home in Dublin, Ireland. Penned by a pair of siblings (10-year-old Hannah and 7-year-old Fred), the letter miraculously survived inside a fireplace without being burned to bits. For 100 years.

According to the Irish Times the letter asks for, "a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves and a toffee apple and a gold penny and a silver sixpence and a long toffee."

We hope they got that long toffee.
