My Very Dear Elizabeth1;

Where does little Margaret second4 find such enchanting Christmas! I still have her last year's card on my writing desk. (Little Mexican in burro cart) and now comes another one so cunning that I must find a place for it, too. I cant give up the little Mexican. Please give her a special hug for me.

With love Your Aunt Willie

Happy New Year to you all5!

Mrs. Lynn S. Ickis1 16221 Greyton Road East Cleveland3 Ohio NEW YORK N.Y.2 JAN 3 1943 10 PM
