HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, January 5, 1878  The full ftpg. is taken up with: "The New Comer--A Sketch in the Depot of an Importer of Animals", by F.S. Church.
There are two very nice Thomas Nast Christmas prints in this issue, one being a great doublepage centerfold captioned: "Here We Are Again" showing a full-figure Santa Claus, with toys, next to a fireplace. "Father Time" is there as well (see). The other Nast Christmas print is: "A Christmas Sketch--Five O'Clock in the Morning" showing two young, very excited girls anticipating Christmas morning (see).
Thomas Nast is considered the creator of the modern version of Santa Claus, as well as the creator of the Republican elephant and the Democratic donkey.
Other prints in this issue include a fullpg: "The Christmas Season--Game Stand in Fulton Market, New York" and another fullpg: "Thank Goodness, Christmas Comes But Once A Year!" done by A. B. Frost.
