    On September 21, 1897, the New York Sun published what was to become the most widely read letter to a newspaper. It was sent by 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon, who lived with her parents in Manhattan. She asked, "Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?" Sun editorial writer Francis Pharcellus Church gave her an amazingly beautiful "Yes."
