[3]of doing a great deal is not yet up to writing her own thoughts so her mother and father send their love and grateful appreciation for her.We all had a happy Christmas at Mothers as usual and the children were beside themselves with joy. Marion is two and a half now so this was her first real Christmas and I assure you she enjoyed it. Our Christmas present was our fine baby boy now nine weeks old and as fine a little fellow as one can find. We are such a happy family. Do come and see us and let Marion climb on your knee. We want her to know you. A Happy New Year to you from us allAffectionatelyKatharine Gorrill
