The Gift Of The Magi is a famous story written by O. Henry about a young couple who are short of money but desperately want to buy each other Christmas gifts. They each sell their most prized possessions to buy the perfect gifts for each other, with surprising consequences. O. Henry was the pen name of American writer William Sydney Porter, and he is famous for writing stories with surprise endings. Though he was born in North Carolina, he lived for a few years in La Salle county, Texas, so I thought it would be appropriate to place this box here. You can find it at the Old Cotulla Cemetery.

From I35 in Cotulla, exit #67 and go east on Hwy 468 about 1/2 mile to the Old Cotulla Cemetery on the left. Drive to the back, curve right, then at next curve park.

Walk 10 yards north to the fence and turn right. Walk to within 10 yards of northeast corner, then turn right and walk 15 steps to a multi-trunk tree with a large Yucca plant just beyond. The Minibox is within the trunk on the left side under a rock and stick. Please rehide well.
