Full Text: Dear Hun,

Your letter and Xmas card came yesterday and was happy to hear from you. I am doing nicely and hope you are too.

I received a card from Mrs. Johnson and Annie Parker (your friend)

Mrs. Johnson sent me a picture of Sister and said she was sending me a coke. I hope it does not spoil. Had a letter from Edith on the same day. She was sending me a gift and some books. I have some more souvenirs to send but am trying to see if you will get the hassocks.

I may go away next month so don't be alarmed if I don't write. It will be about the first to fifteenth. Will write again soon and looking to here from soon.

Remember me to all and write all the news. If mother wrote me I have not received it.

Love, Hun
