if you are still of that mind, we should all three be very happy to have you increase your gifts--say to fifty in all--that would mean twenty more, wouldn't it? And that would indeed be a most bounteous starting-off of your newest friend, who is to grow up to love you--part of it is to be put in the bank under your name.As soon as you can, send the little writing so we can have it put on her plate.And as soon as you can come & see her and us again. She is growing apace. and is gurgly and happy these days.I hope all goes well with you, that you will be able to realize your desires for this year.A kiss from Charlotte-Jean and your most grateful and devoted Charlotte and Vernon Kellogg - affectionate greeting.
