3Perhaps even before you get this she will have passed away. We got letters from both Mr. Drahms and Agnes last night, and are watching the telephone today - I will telephone to Mrs. Muir when we hear the final word.Now just one word about your delightful Christmas gift to Baby Margaret.On New Years day Mrs. George Brown sent her a bank book with a starter of five dollars - yours makes ten - and the foundations of her fortune seem securely laid.031604John French still has his baby bank book and with what he has put in "in recent times" his fortune mounts up to $800.00 He has never drawn a single cent, owing, as he says, to papas' generosity. in supplying all his needs. I mention this because I think it is creditable to his natural prudence-Yours with affectionate regard,M. L. Swett.03160
