My dear Stanley
I was very much touched by your New Year's presents which I shall take to Philadelphia with me whither I am going this P.M.
I do hope that you and the baby are both better and that all goes well with the happy family.

P.S. I think the bank interest shows that you have both been very thrifty & good, I am quite filled with pride!
