Text

My dears

Nell is writing to you and I want you to have my love too.
I'm so happy that I'm afraid it's all a dream. I wish you were with us, but I know you are happy and it's rather selfish of us to wish that, isn't it.
I had Xmas dinner with them in Pass Christian—and I was there when they cabled Xmas greetings to you. Mr. Wilson looks very well, in spite of all the strain and his bad cold,—the cold is nearly all gone now. They all look fine, and sweet and lovely.
And now I wish you a Happy, Happy New Year and happiness all your lives


Ben
