Editor's note: in the decade previous to and of the mass spread of the internet I used to read O. Henry quite prodigiously. His shorter stories, anyhow, so it's inevitable that I'd come across a record of one of those longer ones that I skipped over. I guess it makes sense that I also glossed over the listening portion of this post and couldn't tell you a single thing about this story except that it pertains to Christmas. I started listening to it and just zoned out. Check Wikipedia or something and let me know, m'kay? Right. Now you see how I feel. 

Also, there was a musical side on the reverse of the story but it skipped in so many spots that it seemed pointless to post it and so I didn't. 

It's also the second album that I've posted from The E. F. Mac Donald Company. The other being Dickens' A Christmas Carol, which I've now re-upped.
