My dear Jim,
Accept this little gift from me with all the best wishes Xmas can
offer. If they are not the right size, Jim, you know I will have them
exchanged any time.
We were living in hopes of having snow for Xmas, but the weather
is quite warm today. I think snow adds so much more delight to the
young folks especially where 'Santa Claus' is concerned.
We are having a busy time now arranging matters for the little
children who look forward to that day as the principal one of the
year, and often I look back when it was mine too, but now it seems
that it has the opposite effect and makes me feel sad.
Well, dear Jim, all the girls join me in wishing you a 'Merry Xmas1
and a bright prosperous New Year. And I send my best wishes to
you and your friends.
I now remain
fondly Annie xxx
