Charlotte H. Kellogg
Stanford University21st December 1910Here we are - the babe and me taken for you by Kellogg Pere [diacritic]! And all of us wishing you a Merry Christmas — you dearest friend of us all.We want her to have a little silver plate from you, perfectly plain (I chose it yesterday) from which she is to eat on happiest festival days — birthdays - your birthday04915
and Christmas or as some special reward — As she gets bigger she shall have it on those same days as her bread and butter plate, and then when she is grown she can still use it - and will it to her children!And we want you to write what you would like to have on the plateby way of inscription. I shall have it copied in your own handwriting. Now that isn't a ring, but dont you like the idea? Please say you do and let us have a card with the inscription.I am going up tomorrow to see what can be done for my sister's poor little babe. Which is having a desperate struggle to get any food to nourish it.We have lived over and enjoyed your visit again and again. AffectionatelyCharlotte Kellogg
