so we could have some fun. Your picture & Annas are in a pretty gilt album in my room, and I often take a bo peep at them. You could sleep with one in my funny bed stead, and when it was time to rise a thing would say click and down we would bumble, and before we could look to see what was wrong another thing would say click too, and light a little lamp to show us where our clothes were. When you become a man maybe I will make you one of these beds. I hope you will grow big this year and learn lots at the schoolYour affectionate uncle John00387
