My dear Alice
Thank you so much for the generous check which came yesterday. I sent you a box of Japanese "sparkers" which seem to be a feature of Christmas this year. You light the end in a flame and all the rest happens merrily. I do hope we are going to see Marcet soon.
With every good wish for the rest of this year and all of next. I am always, dear Alice, your loving sister
