My dear Aunt Maggie:-
I will

say it is a very good likeness.
We got the other pretty cards

his very funny and I liked mine
very much.
Mama says she should
have written to you some
time ago but will do so
We have had very cold
weather here before Christmas.
We have had a great
deal of snow and the papers
say it is colder than it has
been for twenty five years.
Grandma is away making
a visit to Uncle Samuel's. I would
like very much to go and see
you some day.
Lloyd and I go to school
every day. Lloyd is in the
second grade and I am in
the fifth.

I am taking lessons.
