Dear Gertrude

I am writing this on my little machine to save you the trouble of reading my dreadful handwriting. I save all my friends either in this way or by not writing at alll.How perfectly dear fo of you to atake the trouble to wroite to me! And I have never written you about your present! I kept thinking that I was going to see you. I assure you that I was a most disappointed person in leaving Washington again without having seen you or that cunning little mite of yours that every body raves about. Well I have that in store for me at any rate. The times that I have planned to call on young Grayson and been frustrated in my plans by some interfering person are countless.

I am so glad that you are well, you sweet nice person.

Thanks you so much for your letter that I did not deserve and for the beautiful Christmas gloves. I appreciate both with all my heart.

With my love,

Margaret.
