However, this was four years and thousands -f miles away from the point of origin. The idea of seals for use in cliai- ity fund raising was conceived by a postal clerk in Denmark in 1903.

Danish-born American, saw the seals on letters and packages arriving in this country. In 1907, a magazine article, which Riis wrote about seals, attracted the attention of a Red Cross worker, Miss Emily Bissell. She was concerned about tlie fate of a small sanatorium and decided to use the idea in its behalf. The first sea] in America, design ed by Miss Bissell, was a .wreath of holly encircling the words "Merry Christmas!" She promptly had 50,000 of them printed, but had no way of selling them.
