pressed expressed were certainly interesting.
One woman came forward with the Idea that Mr. Saunders
is probably a Christian-minded man and "El Nino Dios" must
have intended him to have the money as a Christmas present.
Another young woman was real touched. She said she was
going to cray that nobody would come forward to claim the
money so that Saunders could keep it.
I am Inclined to agree with the first one what Saunders
must be pure at heart and Santa Clns reallv meant for him to
have the money as a Christmas gift.
