Leona Dalrymple (Mrs. C. Acton Wilson) ( 1884 - ? ) was an American author. In 1914, she won a prize of $10,000 for her novel, Diane of the Green Van. Among her other stories are Traumerei (1912); The lovable Meddler (1915); Jimsy, The Christmas Kid (1915); When the Yule-Log Burns (1916); Kenny (1917); "Paul" stories (1920). She also wrote short stories for magazines and moving picture scenarios.
His name was Jimsy and he took it for granted that you liked him. That made things difficult from the very start—that and the fact that he arrived in the village two days before Christmas strung to such a holiday pitch of expectation that, if you were a respectable, bewhiskered first citizen like Jimsy's host, you felt the cut-and-dried dignity of a season which unflinching thrift had taught you to pare of all its glittering non-essentials, threatened by his bubbling air of faith in something wonderful to happen
