Dear uncle John,_
Many thanks for your kind wishes for us girls and for what you said about books for "New Year." We have not got the books yet. thinking us would prize them yet more highly if you selected them for us your- self when you come this summer.
We hope nothing will prevent your making this long talked of visit and that you'll bring aunt Louie and Wanda. We are very fond of little folks here and I'm sure we should much enjoy little Wanda's company. She will be about tyhe size that Celia was when you saw her last I think - and [just?]
ink, Celia has been teaching school for a year now.
We both intend to teach this summer, but my school is not far out of town, so that I expect to be able to come home every Saturday.
I wish we could import some of your fine summer weather here this morning. It is very cold and icy. But it can't be very long till spring comes. We have had such a hard winter I used to think I liked winter best, but now I'm doubtful. Just think! Only two days in Jabnuary in which the thermo- meter registered above zero, and quite a number of times as low as 40 degrees below zero. But I must close. With love to all, I am,
Affectioniately, Your niece, Anna G. Galloway
