left alone with my parents3 and one little nephew4 to catch my breath. We've had lots of snow and cold, and it's been the jolliest Christmas I've had in many years. After a few weeks more of winter and quiet here2, I am going down to Tucson, Arizona5, for awhile. I suppose I'll be here in New York6 in March—to do my income tax! But really, Zoë1, I almost doubt if I ever live there again. It's not worth the trouble.
A Happy New year to you, my dear, my love and a thousand good wishes from this winter-white country. I'm going skating on the frozen river this afternoon It's a sport I love.Yours always Willa
