My Dear Elizabeth1;

Here I am again—had to come down to receive a gold medal5! You'll hear about it later. Don't expect too much from the Christmas toys. They are rather silly little figures, but they were all made by hand by German peasants. They will go with the manger figures I sent you some years ago. I have telephoned Mary Virginia6, but have not seen her yet

With love W. S. C.
