Dear Sister, Received the Xmas present was so glad to get it. A scarf is the very thing I needed. Will bring yours and rest when I come home. What kind of Xmas did you have? Suppose you got lots of presents. Did you get my letter? Edna said you were going to have a tree. Did you? Am feeling fine. Love to all, Hattie [sic]
