Christmas Eve.
Dearest,
This is just a very small & ‘belated Christmas present from Mother & Alice. [deleted] They [/deleted] Even they (!) haven’t much stuff this year, but they wanted to send you[deleted]r[/deleted] a remembrancer. The chocolate is from Alice & Jimmy, the sweets are from Mother, & the orange, of course, is from Bob’s famous parcel. This is the best of the oranges, so you can see they aren’t much to look at. Still, they send what they’ve got with best wishes for Christmas.
I’ll stop now, as I’m not feeling in form for writing having been up since Wednesday night!
Hope you have a good Christmas. All my love,
Harold.
P.S. I hope the slippers fit. I’m afraid they may be too big, & [deleted] [indecipherable letters] [/deleted] I’m certain they’re not the right colour, but they
[page break]
seemed to be very good quality, & I was afraid that a size smaller would be too narrow. Perhaps you could pass them on to your mother or Grace if they’re no use to you.
