Out of this vision came the tuberculosis Christmas Seal, sold first in Denmark in 1904 and 'now an international weapon in the fight against tuberculosis. The Seal idea was adopted in this country in 1907."

"It, therefore, gives me great pleasure to endrose Christmas Seals as a method of raising funds for the fight against tuberculosis and I urge everyone to co-operate in this campaign. I hope veryone will buy as as many seals as possible and that every greeting card and gift going forth from our city will carry the double-barred cross Christmas Seal, showing that Hope is doing its part to eradicate tuberculosis.
