I shall not be home this side of the holiday now so I should be very glad of a parcel for Xmas if you have time to send it.
I know it is rather close so I shall quite understand if I do not receive it.
In case I do not have time to write again I hope you will all have a happy time.
With much love from
P.S. Please remember me to Mr. & Mrs. Warman & Lilian & wish them the complements of the season. I hope they are quite well.
