There was an old writer who lived in a stew, 'Cause she had so many nieces she didn't know what to do! And they lived so many places she just lost her wits So she siezed her address book and tore it to bits!!

P.S. Please send me present addresses of Elizabeth3 and Margaret4. Have something for them and can't send even a card.

My right hand5 has gone back on me and is very lame.

Merry Christmas and love Willie
