"MY FAVOURITE HOME-GROWN FRUIT,
AND HOW I LIKE TO EAT IT."
**********

continued:

    Dear Uncle Sam,-- The home grown fruit I like
best is the apple, and I like to eat them just as
they come off the trees.  It is grand to be in an
orchard when the apples are all ripe and ready
for taking off the trees.  They are also very nice
in a pie or a dumpling.-- I remain, your loving
nephew,
                            Willie LANCASTER,
                                    20, Church-street, Moor Row.

    Dear Uncle Sam,-- The home grown fruit I like
best is the apple.  There are many others I like
such as pears, plums, &c., but the apple is my
favourite, and the way I like to eat it best is to
have it roasted before the fire, and then eat it
with sugar and cream.-- I remain, your loving
niece,
                            Sarah Lizzie PORTER,
                                    3, Moor Cottages, Millom.

    Dear Uncle Sam,-- My favourite home grown
fruit is the gooseberry, which can be eaten in
different ways, but I prefer them in a cake.
Some gooseberries are yellow when ripe, and
others are red.  It will not be long until the
gooseberries are ripe.  There are a great many
different kinds of fruits, but this is my favourite.
-- From your affectionate niece,

    Dear Uncle Sam,-- My favourite fruit is the
apple.  There are many kinds of apples,such as
the crab apple and the pine apple, but the one I
prefer is the lemon square ,and the way I like to
eat it is to have it raw.  Many people say that
eating fruit before it is ripe is bad for you.-- I
remain, your affectionate nephew,
