Dear Aunt Anne
Your beautiful letter came at just the time when such a note of generous solicitude was most welcome. Maggie is getting on now very well and has no pain. We were going over to have Xmas dinner with Jack and Minnie, but today Maggie wrote that it did not at all seem probable that she could undertake such an excursion.
Just now I had telephone from Florrie, that her Mother, who has been suffering from a cold, seemed to be sinking down under the fever of it and that her case was such as to give them grave anxiety. I am to call her up in the morning, and will let you know immediately of any change.
With deepest reverence and affection
