[2]If you would take the bus at Dwight Way Station, there would be no difficulty in finding the house. Do come.I hope you are all escaping the annual attack of Grip at this season, and have had a happy Xmas. The weather here is simply vile.I have been miserably ill since I saw you last, but for three weeks have been up and out.The one absorbing event at home is the arrival of a little daughter to my sister Julia, and which she has named Katharine. This is not Aunt Kate's, but my namesake & I am very [3]happy in being so remembered & so enriched.But the best news of all is that dear Janet has been brought home not well, but much better. She seems herself but is very nervous as would any well person be who could sleep but two nights out of the seven.Hoping to see you on Wednesday, and with love to the family, I amSincerely yours,Katharine GraydonDec. 29th '94
