Your lovely daffodils came on Christmas Eve, and so did Roscoe’s4 violets! I do think the men of my family have good memories and faithful hearts. We5 had hoped to go up to West Point3 to see you on your short holiday, but my hand is very bad6 indeed just now. I have been working hard on something7 that interests me very much, and the result is that now I can scarcely hold a pen at all.
Much love to you, my boy, and a bright and happy year lies before you in
feel feel sure of that.
