[Jan.] 1867 Ind [illegible]My dear little nephew George Galloway I am glad you sent me your little letter, because it made me think of all the big lots of fun we used to have when you lived at Fountain Lake. Old Santa Claus gave you lots of candy and good things. he did not put anything in my socks, I suppose he likes little boys & girls best. You must read all the pretty book that grandma gave you, and you will soon read lots of big books, and get a great deal of good knowledge and become a useful man. I wish you were here
