Thank you, my dears1, for the lovely handkerchiefs, and thank Jim6 and Ethel7 for the box of fruit. We8 had a jolly Christmas, with lots of opera and many concerts. Poor Aunt Elsie9 has been having a gloomy time, I am afraid. My very special love to you both, and with all my heart I wish you a Happy New Year.
