My Dearest Frances: This will be too late to reach you for Christmas but I hope you had a lovely time and were lucky enough to receive lots of presents from Father Christmas He usually rewards good girls & Mother tells me that you are a very good one. I hope she is a very good Mother, too, I had plenty of nice presents as well. You must be a big girl nowadays & will shortly be going to school I suppose. I am longing to see you & to know how you have changed from the little baby I left behind so long ago. Give my love to Mother, Do look after her, won’t you – She is so nice. from Father.
